Rapper Tweets 'YOLO'; Dies in Car CrashBy: TheRoot.com
The last tweet sent out by Erwin McKiness, an aspiring Southern California rapper, read, "Driving tweeting sipping the cup [expletive] yolo I'm turning it up," CBS News reports.
Not long after the "You only live once" message, he died in a suspected drunk-driving crash. Four friends of 21-year-old McKiness, also known as Jew'elz and Inkyy, were also killed in the tragic Sept. 2 accident.
"Drunk af going 120 difting corners #F**kItYOLO," tweeted the 21-year-old McKiness just before he and his friends died in a car accident on Sept. 2 in Ontario, Calif., reports the San Bernardino Sun.
McKinness was accompanied in the car by Marquell Bogan, 23, and Dylan George, 20, Jonathan Watson, 21, and JaJuan Bennett, 23. Bogan died at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, Calif. The others were pronounced dead at the scene.
While McKiness' tweet makes it sound as if he was behind the wheel, police said it was Watson who was driving, reports the paper ...
The police are still investigating the incident, but officers told the paper that there was a high likelihood alcohol was involved, based on the statements made before the crash.
The police were referring to the final tweet by @ink2flashyy, sent out at 1:20 a.m.
It read "Driving tweeting sipping the cup (expletive) yolo I'm turning it up."
