(RNN) - Rapper Christopher "Fresh Kid Ice" Wong Won, a founding member of Miami-based 2 Live Crew, died Thursday at 53, CNN reports. 

His agent, DJ DBo, told CNN that Won had been dealing with health issues.  

"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," tweeted Luther R. Campbell, the lead of the group. 

2 Live Crew's album "As Nasty As They Wanna Be" prompted an obscenity lawsuit over the record's raunchiness that went to the Supreme Court. The group won the suit in 1992 in a case that paved the way for parental advisory labels.
