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

Fresh Kid Ice aka Chris Wong Won of hardcore rap outfit 2 Live Crew has passed away.

The rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wong Won, died in a Miami hospital on Thursday after suffering an undisclosed medical condition.

Rising out of Miami, 2 Live Crew rose to prominence in the late 80s and 90s with their hyper-sexualized lyrics and artwork with tracks like "As Nasty As They Wanna Be" and "Me So Horny", going so far as to be deemed "legally obscene" by the USA government. 2 Live Crew's longtime manager Debo confirmed Wong Won's death to Rolling Stone.

The German statement also said the country's security services were steering Liu's treatment rather than the doctors. Mo Zhixu, a family friend, told Efe that as far as he knew, Liu and his entourage continued to seek to leave China.

After forming the group and realizing their success, the group later joined Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell's record label and brought him into the fold. Fresh Kid was even arrested for performing songs from the album Nasty as They Wanna Be at Club Futura in Hollywood.

The obscene label was eventually overturned in 1992, when the US Court of Appeals for the 11th District ruled that the album featured significant influences from literary traditions and African-American Culture.

He co-founded 2 Live Crew with DJ Mr. Mixx (David Hobbs) and Amazing Vee (Yuri Vielot) while still living in California but they relocated to Florida when their 1984 debut single "The Revelation" became a surprise hit there.
