Fresh Kid Ice, born Christopher Wong Won, was a co-founder of
the controversial, but undeniably influential hip hop group 2
Live Crew. He passed away on Tuesday at age 53.
The group’s longtime manager Debo confirmed his passing in the
crew’s Miami home base was related to a “medical condition” but
didn’t provide further details.
Fresh Kid Ice is noted as one of the first prominent Asian
rappers and is the only 2 Live Crew member to have appeared on
all of the group’s albums.
Former group member Luther Campbell (Uncle Luke) tweeted his
condolences earlier today.
