ROBERT SIEGEL, Host:

NPR's Sami Yenigun reports.

SAMI YENIGUN: Unidentified Woman (Singer): (Singing) Teach me how to dougie. Teach me, teach me how to dougie, dougie. Teach me how to dougie. Teach me, teach me how to dougie, dougie.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "TEACH ME HOW TO DOUGIE")

CALI SWAG DISTRICT: (Singing) Everybody love me. Err- everybody love me. Everybody love me. You ain't messing with my dougie, dougie.

YENIGUN: Jeff Weiss, a freelancer for the Los Angeles Times, interviewed him and the group earlier this year for a feature article.

JEFF WEISS: You know, when you're a dance group, at least one of the guys in the group needs to really be good at it.

YENIGUN: Weiss says that all of the group's members could do the dance, but that M-Bone was the smoothest. He was smooth with the ladies as well, according to Weiss, and tried hard to stay out of trouble.

WEISS: I mean, they grew up in Inglewood, so, you know, they kind of seen people, you know, get into gangs and end up getting killed, but he was pretty adamant about not being like that.

YENIGUN: Unidentified Woman: (Singing) Teach me how to dougie. Teach me, teach me how to dougie, dougie. Teach me how to dougie. Teach me, teach me how to dougie, dougie.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "TEACH ME HOW TO DOUGIE")

SWAG DISTRICT: (Singing) Everybody love me. Err-everybody love me.

SIEGEL: You're listening to ALL THINGS CONSIDERED from NPR News.
