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

"My Condolence goes out to the family Chris Wong Wong Fresh Kid Ice of the 2 Live Crew who just passed away people we lost a legend", he wrote.

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

Campbell tweeted: "People we lost a legend".

Campbell would eventually join 2 Live Crew as an official member and the group's success and infamy grew with their next record, 1987's Move Somethin'. He was a pioneering Asian rapper and co-founding member of influential group 2 Live Crew, according to TMZ.

Famously, 2 Live Crew were the first musical artist to have an album declared legally obscene when their 1989 album, As Nasty As They Wanna Be dropped to outrage.

Fresh Kid and the group's biggest contribution to American rap and pop culture is that they became poster children for First Amendment rights after the constantly tested and stretched the boundaries of self-expression, political correctness and decency. After making a name for himself in the music industry, he later went on to form his own record label called Chinaman Records.

The Supreme Court ruled in favour with 2 Live Crew in 1992 but the case led to parental advisory labels on album covers. "But when the videos came out, it basically crossed the group over". Rapper Juicy J also tweeted: "R.I.P Fresh Kid Ice". Ice had previously suffered two strokes, one in 2008 and one in 2010.
