Ervin McKinness, a 21-year-old aspiring rapper, tweeted about driving drunk at 120 mph minutes before dying in a fiery one-car crash that killed the rapper and four others.



"YOLO" is an acronym for "You Only Live Once." The phrase was made popular by singer Drake, who used "YOLO" in his song "The Motto." Another tweet reportedly posted by McKinness talked about drinking and driving. The tweet read, "Driving tweeting sipping the cup f*** yolo I'm turning it up," according to the Daily Mail. This tweet has since been deleted but retweeted on the account.

His rap name is Inkyy.

"I believe life is the biggest test.
I'm goin' in the right direction never goin' left.
Success is all I see I want the finer things
I had a dream like Martin Luther King"


Too bad this story will be defined by many in terms of idiocy and not tragedy.

Had never heard of this guy before today, nevertheless...

RIP

Any loss of life is regrettable but wow, what a douche.

Idiot!

Shame he had to take others with him, but I'm sure they were all aware of the state he was in.

If the report is true, sounds like he was texting with one hand, drinking with the other, and had his pedal to the metal.

One of those alone is risky, but all of them together?
Crazy stuff.

I had a friend recently post "nothing in the Universe can stop me". He was murdered 2 days later
We are connected in ways we don't understand.

As for the rapper... too bad he didn't take that YOLO understanding more seriously.

Wow...maybe I should start posting all the stuff from my Facebook too? It's not a tragedy, it's idiocy.

He chose his end. He really did. That's all there is to it. If he hadn't wanted to die, he wouldn't have been doing that. And even if he hadn't, it wold have happened sooner or later. Personally, judging by his behavior, I'm glad he's not making music anymore. Imagine the influence on the children of this world...

stories like this convince me even more that we should officially drop the word "theory" from darwins theory of evolution.

You never know, there could be a conspiracy angle here. Maybe the kid was going to release a really explosive song. Maybe we did lose something big.

Anyone?

Haha. That's one way to look at it, but I think perhaps it isn't that Darwin's theory is flawed, but our society is FIGHTING evolution because we're too attached to what's familiar. We don't want to do the work of evolving; we would much rather force the environment around us to adjust to our presence instead of us adjusting to the physical world. We're forcing nature to cater to us.

Welcome to the world of material mastery. Brings to mind the phrase: "The question isn't could we...it's SHOULD we...?"

Meh...that's debateable.

But he is now up for a Darwin Award. To bad that he took others with him though.

If he had survived that stupid choice would have put him in prison for the murder of four other people.

Now that I think about it...

WOOHOO! I made it!


And I believe that the proper term is, Dirty Rotten Bastards.
