Miami rap star Rick Ross also tweeted out a rest in peace message, “Dam! Just got call we lost 2 Live crew legend Fresh Kid Ice this morning! RIP.”

2 Live Crew was a groundbreaking rap group whose explicit content helped lead to the creation of the Parental Advisory warning sticker.

They were also participants in the historic Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. United States Supreme Court decision which favored the artists’ right to create parody as fair use.

A biopic about Uncle Luke and the rest of the 2 Live Crew is currently in the works.
