Rapper Drunkenly Tweets "YOLO" Moments Before Dying In Car Crash
Four Other Friends Died With Him
You only live once, so try to make it count. Up-and-coming rapper Ervin McKinness, aka Inkyy, died tragically when he drove into a wall, just minutes after bragging on Twitter about drunk driving.
On Sunday, Sept. 2, the 21-year-old McKinness posted on his Twitter account at 1:19 a.m. that he was driving drunk at well over the speed limit:
"Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #FuckIt YOLO," he wrote.
20 minutes later, McKinness and his friends -- Marquell Bogan, 23, Dylan George, 20, Jonathan Watson, 21, and JaJuan Bennett, 23 -- were all killed when their 2005 Nissan Sentra slid through a red light and crashed into a wall in Ontario, California.
Though McKinness' tweets suggest he was the one driving (a now-deleted tweet from the rapper reportedly read: "Driving tweeting sipping the cup f*** yolo I'm turning it up"), investigators believe Watson may have actually been behind the wheel.
"They're certainly looking at that because it will be a vital part of the investigation, but it's too early to give an opinion as to whether it (drunken driving) was a cause or contributed to the crash," said Ontario police Sgt. David McBride.
Below is the official video for the rapper's last single, "Dreams."
