Live Crew Founding Member Fresh Kid Ice Dead at 53

Twitter

Christopher "Fresh Kid Ice" Wong Won, a founding member of rap group 2 Live Crew, died Thursday, July 13, 2017, according to his agent.

"People we lost a legend", Campbell tweeted. After they released the "As Nasty As They Wanna Be" album, it was the first to be labeled legally obscene by the government.

Fresh Kid Ice was born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Brooklyn.

Fresh Kid Ice, who was also known as The Chinaman, was the culture's first Asian and Trinidadian rapper.

Although 2 Live Crew is identified as part of the Miami hip-hop scene, the group's genesis took place in California.

In 1986, the group released the album "The 2 Live Crew Is What We Are". Eventually, he went on to form his own label, Chinaman Records.

Fresh Kid Ice was the only member to appear on every 2 Live Crew album.

Fresh Kid served in the U.S. Air Force for four years before getting out and delving full time into music. "I didn't know an Asian dude was rapping like that!'" Wong wrote a lot about being ostracized as a youth due to his heritage in his memoir My Rise 2 Fame.

He released Freaky Chinese in 2004, which notably featured several appearances from Flo Rida before he hit song charts.

The independent "Booty Bass" pioneers would soon relocate to Miami, where they helped popularize a brand of Hip-Hop blending Rap and Bass music.

'The Asians were there in the beginning of hip-hop - but as DJs, ' he said. However, he retaught himself how to talk and walk before reuniting with Uncle Luke and Brother Marquis in 2012.
