"People we lost a legend!" On Instagram, the rap artist also shared an image of Fresh Kid smiling with the same mournful caption.

Fresh Kid Ice Cause of Death: How Did the 2 Live Crew Rapper Die?

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.

Fresh Kid Ice was the only 2 Live Crew member who appeared on all albums.

In a 2014 interview, Won told the Miami New Times that the group "knew that there's value to our music even though it's not what (the authorities) wanted it to be". In 2004, he released Freaky Chinese, which notably featured several appearances from a pre-fame Flo Rida. That comes as other 1980s Hip-Hop acts such as N.W.A. and Roxanne Shanté have become theatrical film subjects. However, he retaught himself how to talk and walk before reuniting with Uncle Luke and Brother Marquis in 2012.
