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

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!"

Fresh Kid Ice formed the hip hop group with Amazing Vee and DJ Mr. Mixx in 1984.

Won was just 53 years old. Fittingly, he added, "We lost a legend". The three were later joined by Luther Campbell in 1990.

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. Even before the controversy over As Nasty As they Wanna Be, authorities were cracking down on record store clerks for selling 2 Live Crew albums, although the charges never stuck. 2 Live Crew co-founder Fresh Kid Ice is dead. The group was best known for their distinct sounds that came through the monster cuts "Banned in the USA" and "Me So Horny". A Broward record store owner was also jailed for selling the album to an undercover cop. Despite the shifts, Fresh Kid Ice remained with the outfit until they officially split after 1998's The Real One. Other people could be like, 'Damn, that could be me.

He is also credited with being an early mentor to Flo Rida, who extensively appeared on Ice's 2004 Freaky Chinese album. However, he retaught himself how to talk and walk before reuniting with Uncle Luke and Brother Marquis in 2012.
