Justin Melo of JH Publicity was brought on board to assist with publicity and promotions for the Cali Swag District’s debut album titled “The Kickback” which was released July 12, 2011. The Cali Swag District quickly rose to fame after they released their debut single, “Teach Me How to Dougie” (Capital Records) which became one of the most popular songs in the world. The hit-song’s follow-up, “Where You Are” hit #22 on the Billboard Rap Charts.
A few months back, tragedy struck the group when Cali Swag District member “M-Bone” was shot and killed on May 15, 2011 — he was only 22 years old. Eight days after M-Bone’s death, Cali Swag District premiered the song “How to Do That” in his honor. The song was included on their successful mixtape, Deeper Than the Dougie.
“Burn Out (Drive Fast)” will be the next single released.
