Christopher Wong Won-better known as "Fresh Kid Ice", the co-founder of the popular Miami, Florida Hip-Hop group 2 Live Crew-has died at the age of 53.

Campbell left the group acrimoniously in the 1990s, although Fresh Kid Ice carried on and is the only member to have appeared on all of 2 Live Crew's albums.

He and pal Uncle Luke, whose real name is Luther Campbell, were arrested in 1990 after police deemed one of their live performances obscene and lewd.

Miami rap star Rick Ross also tweeted out a rest in peace message, "Dam!"
