Live Crew co-founder Fresh Kid Ice dies at 53

Fresh Kid Ice, one of the founder members of controversial hip-hop outfit 2 Live Crew has died, aged 53.

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

The group, which Fresh Kid Ice helped form with fellow artists Mr. Mixx (David Hobbs) and Amazing Vee (Yuri Vielot), became a household name after Campbell lured them (minus Vielot) to Miami and signed them to a record deal.

Rick Ross, Juicy J and Luther Campbell have since posted touching messages to Chris. He was a pioneering Asian rapper and co-founding member of influential group 2 Live Crew, according to TMZ.

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.

The hip-hop crew's most successful album, "As Nasty As They Wanna Be", was the first album considered to be legally obscene because of its sexually explicit content a year after its release in 1989.

Fresh Kid had suffered from numerous medical issues earlier on in his life. The group was best known for their distinct sounds that came through the monster cuts "Banned in the USA" and "Me So Horny". Rapper Juicy J also tweeted: "R.I.P Fresh Kid Ice". Other people could be like, 'Damn, that could be me. Fresh Kid Ice later released solo album, The Chinaman, on Effect Records, the record widely acclaimed for being the first Hip-Hop album embracing having an Asian heritage. He discovered the rapper Flo Rida. The incidents impaired his ability to move and speak.
