Rapper Drunk-Tweets "YOLO," Then Dies In Car Crash Minutes Later

One week later, Ervin McKinness’ friends are trying to clear his name — he wasn’t the driver — and draw attention to the amateur rapper’s YouTube account.

According to The Sun, Ervin McKinness, 21, an aspiring rapper who also went by the name Inkyy — died alongside four other men shortly after tweeting this. The driver of their 2005 Nissan Sentra had ran a red light and slammed into a wall. (McKinness was not the driver.)

Technically, though, McKinness’ last tweet was responding to a friend who asked where he was.

It now appears someone has taken over McKinness’ Twitter account to try and clear his name.

Friends have also taken over his YouTube account, re-uploading McKinness’ songs.

It’s worked. A video Inkyy uploaded five months ago now has more than 25,000 views.
