2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell reacted to the news on Twitter, writing, "My condolence goes out to the family".

Fresh Kid Ice was widely regarded as one of the first major Asian rappers in the United States when he and 2 Live Crew burst into the Miami hip hop scene in the mid-1980s.

Fresh Kid Ice, whose birth name is Christopher Wong Won, was pronounced dead at a Miami hospital from an unknown medical condition, according to TMZ.

The rapper and his crew were active promoters for First Amendment Rights after their album, As Nasty As They Wanna Be, was the first to be deemed legally obscene by government officials. 2 Live Crew's debut single, 1985's "Revelation", proved popular in Florida, so the troupe relocated to Miami.

They later hooked up with Luther Campbell and signed to his record label. 2 Live Crew co-founder Fresh Kid Ice is dead. In 1990 a federal court ruled that it was "obscene" and made it illegal for record stores in southern Florida to sell the album.
