Wake me up from this bad dream… Hip Hop has lost another Pioneer in the rap game. Fresh Kid Ice AKA Chinaman AKA Christopher Wong died on Thursday July 13th at the age of 53. The cause of death as stated by the group’s manager Debo is long-term medical conditions. Fresh Kid Ice was an influential member of the legendary group “The 2 Live Crew”. The 2 Live Crew broke barriers when it came to freedom of speech. With their hardcore explicit sexual raps, they pushed the envelope and changed the music industry. Battling the Sheriff of Broward County, the 2 Live Crew prevailed in court and showed the world that living in America, freedom of speech was our constitutional right. Because of their efforts, the music industry started posting “Parental Advisory” stickers on music that had explicit lyrics. Thank you Fresh kid Ice for paving the way. Sleep In Peace and you will never be forgotten.
