Rapper Tweets YOLO Before Crashing

September 16, 2012By

“A promising young rapper tweets YOLO before crashing  and killing five  people.  He used his Twitter account to boast about speeding and drink driving – even tweeting ‘YOLO’ (the acronym for You Only Live Once) – moments before crashing the car when it hit a wall in Ontario, California.  It killed  everyone inside.

Ervin McKinness, 21, was one of five men all in their early twenties killed in the suburban crash just after 1am over Labor Day weekend.”

This just happened a few days ago – these guys were idiots.  Why would anyone think that driving a car (while tweeting & lord knows what else), could be cool?  It’ s not cool.

“A Twitter account linked to the Southern California rapper, known as ‘Inkyy’ and ‘Jew’elz’, contained a tweet at 1.19am on September 2 that read: ‘Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #F***It. YOLO.’


The final tweet was one minute later, reading: ‘Driving tweeting sipping the cup f*** yolo I’m turning it up.’


The 2005 Nissan Sentra allegedly ran a red light, lost control and slammed into a wall before coming to rest in the backyard of a home.

Four of the five passengers died at the scene with the fifth pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The four other passengers have been identified as Marquell Bogan, 23, Dylan George, 20, Jonathan Watson, 21, and JaJuan Bennett, 23.

The tweets have become part of an investigation by police.

‘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 [drunken driving] was a cause or contributed to the crash,’ Ontario police Sgt. David McBride told the SB Sun.

Since the crash his sister has taken over his Twitter page, according to Twitter user CENNAZAVEH3AVY, defending her brother as having been a passenger and not the driver that night.

That resulting activity by his Twitter account, ink2flashyy, originally sparked debate on whether police and local news reports had named the wrong Twitter user.
According to McKinness’ friends he was an up and coming rapper having been either recently signed or in the process by a major label.

A YouTube music video for his single titled Dreams has racked up more than 23,000 views since its upload on April of this year.

YOLO was made popular by the Canadian rapper Drake in his hit “The Motto”.”


What a tradgedy. And – he had a ‘Dream’ like Martin Luther King.

    However, there is a limited period for the second appeal.
    Proving negligence is done through the evidence you provide with
    your claim. After treatment, you lie in the hospital bed not knowing when you’ll
    be able to go home.
