In an effort to catch the killer(s) of young rapper Monte Ray Talbert, the city of Inglewood is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the individual(s).

Talbert, also known as M-Bone, was a member of the popular group Cali Swag District, and died May 15 after suffering gunshot wounds as he was coming from a store in the 400 block of North La Brea Avenue in Inglewood.

According to the detective working the case, there have been some leads but the volume has slowed considerably, and the hope is that the reward will prompt other witnesses or individuals with information about the crime to come forward.

The reward offer will be good until December 2012.
