Aspiring Rapper Tweets “YOLO” While Drunk Driving & Dies Minutes Later (Video)

Tragedy in 140 characters or less: “Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #FuckIt YOLO”
Those, in effect, were the last words of Ervin McKinness, a 21-year-old up-and-coming rapper, who died in a one-car crash that killed him and four others. Marquell Bogan, 23; Dylan George, 20; Jonathan Watson, 21; and JaJuan Bennett, 23 were also killed in the crash. There is no spin or new lesson here. You KNOW reckless, drunk driving is wrong. Though McKinness was NOT driving (according to the Huffington Post), you KNOW that texting and driving should NOT be done at the same time… whether it is against the law in your region or not. People… It’s true that you only live once; but by all means LIVE! Life is already risky and fragile. Driving 120… and driving drunk… adds deadly unnecessary risk. And in the midst of taking such risk, we certainly need not celebrate or tweet about it. In the postmortem, there is also no need to preach about it. It’s too late.

This is so sad. Rest In Peace, Young Brothers.
