Live Crew's Fresh Kid Ice Has Died

Twitter

He founded 2 Live Crew with Amazing Vee and DJ Mr. Mixx in 1984.

Christopher Wong Won, who was known as Fresh Kid Ice, died Tuesday at the age of 53.

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. After migrating to Brooklyn from Trinidad and Tobago, he formed 2 Live Crew in the early '80s. He later left them to form his own label, Chinaman Records.

John Podesta op-ed: Why is Donald Trump tweeting about me?
While Podesta's emails were hacked, his emails were separate from those of the DNC's, which were also hacked by Russians . Read the whole tweet storm below. "You're representing the USA at the G20", Podesta tweeted.

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.

Wong Won was arrested at Club Futura in Hollywood after performing songs from the album "As Nasty As They Wanna Be", which a judge ruled violated federal obscenity laws.

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

CDC: Opioid prescriptions drop nationwide but crisis is nowhere near the end
The guidelines, which are nonbinding, also recommend limiting opioid treatment for short-term pain to less than a week. From 2006 to 2010, daily MME per prescription remained steady, but then it decreased 17 percent from 2010 to 2015.

Fresh Kid Ice spent time in the armed forces before getting into music. The crew's last album, "The Real One", was released in 1998. After their 1988 album Move Somethin', Fresh Kid Ice was in a debilitating auto accident that injured his brachial plexus and prevented him from moving his left arm.

"When we first started, a lot of people didn't know I was Asian", Fresh Kid Ice said during an interview with Vice in 2016. However, he retaught himself how to talk and walk before reuniting with Uncle Luke and Brother Marquis in 2012.

Middle East crisis: Gulf media predict more sanctions on Qatar
