2 Live Crew Member Fresh Kid Ice Dead At 53

Christopher Wong Won, aka Fresh Kid Ice, one of the co-founders of the Miami-based 2 Live Crew rap group, died Thursday, July 13, 2017, in a Miami hospital, according to multiple news sources.

'My Condolence goes out to the family Chris Wong Wong Fresh Kid Ice of the 2 Live Crew who just passed away people we lost a legend, ' he wrote.

Fresh Kid formed the legendary hip-hop crew 2 Live Crew alongside DJ Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee in 1984.

Fresh, born Chris Wong Won in Trinidad and Tobago, was renowned as one of the major rappers of Asian descent in hip-hop. "People we lost a legend!" The three were later joined by Luther Campbell in 1990.

The 2 Live Crew perform onstage at the 2010 Vh1 Hip Hop Honors at Hammerstein Ballroom on June 3, 2010 in New York City. That year, a federal court declared their album As Nasty As They Wanna Be the first legally obscene album, making it illegal for retailers in south Florida to sell.


In 1988, shortly before the release of 2 Live Crew's sophomore album Move Somethin' in 1988, Fresh Kid was involved in a near fatal vehicle accident.

Fresh Kid previously addressed how being one of the first Asian rappers impacted his fans.

Fellow 2 Live Crew member Uncle Luke tweeted about Fresh Kids Ice's death shortly after the rapper's manager told TMZ of his death. "But when the videos came out, it basically crossed the group over".

He released Freaky Chinese in 2004, which notably featured several appearances from Flo Rida before he hit song charts. The incidents impaired his ability to move and speak.
