Live Crew's Fresh Kid Ice dies

Fresh Kid Ice Cause of Death: How Did the 2 Live Crew Rapper Die?

Many have taken to social media to pay tribute to Ice, with rapper Rick Ross writing, "Just got call we lost 2 Live crew legend Fresh Kid Ice this morning!"

Won, 53, is better known by his stage name Fresh Kid Ice.

"As Nasty As They Wanna Be", released in 1989, became the first album to ever be deemed legally obscene by the USA government. 2 Live Crew's longtime manager Debo confirmed Wong Won's death to Rolling Stone.

They later hooked up with Luther Campbell and signed to his record label. In 1990, Fresh and Luke were arrested after cops deemed one of their live performances lewd and inappropriate. A judge ruled he violated federal obscenity laws.

The group 2 Live Crew, which he formed alongside Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee, is known for explicit hits including "Me So Horny", "What I Like" and "Throw the D".

After graduating high school in 1982, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, serving for four years. The crew's last album, "The Real One", was released in 1998.

Fresh Kid also suffered his first stroke on Thanksgiving 2009, which was followed by a second stroke early 2010, and he had to retrain himself to walk and correct his speech.

'The Asians were there in the beginning of hip-hop - but as DJs, ' he said.
