*2 Live Crew founding member Fresh Kid Ice died from cirrhosis of the liver, among other factors, according to TMZ.

The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner said the rapper’s death at age 53 was also caused by Hepatitis C and a history of alcohol abuse.

Kid suffered from acute respiratory failure and went into shock before his death, TMZ reports:

The Medical Examiner’s office said it signed off on a request for Fresh Kid’s — real name Chris Wong Won — body to be cremated and sent to a funeral home, though it’s unclear if the body’s already been cremated.

TMZ broke the story … Fresh Kid died at a Miami hospital back in July. He was a pioneer for Asian rappers and formed the legendary hip-hop crew with DJ Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee in 1984 before hooking up with Luther Campbell.
