Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #FuckIt YOLO-- 2.7.5 Inkyy

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.
