2 Live Crew's Luther Campbell reacted to the news on Twitter, writing, "My condolence goes out to the family".
Fresh Kid Ice formed the hip hop group with Amazing Vee and DJ Mr. Mixx in 1984.
The rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wong Won, died in a Miami hospital on Thursday after suffering an undisclosed medical condition. Famously, the group's 1989 album As Nasty As They Wanna Be became the first album to be declared legally obscene by a court.
In fact, Fresh Kid and Campbell, aka Uncle Luke, were arrested in 1990 after a live performance that city officials and police deemed obscene and lewd.
Before getting into music, Fresh Kid served in the U.S. Air Force for four years. Even so, the group reformed in 1994 and lasted until 1998.

Fresh Kid Ice, who was also known as The Chinaman, was the culture's first Asian and Trinidadian rapper.
He released Freaky Chinese in 2004, which notably featured several appearances from Flo Rida before he hit song charts.
Hip-Hop is mourning the death of one of it's legends.
"When we first started, a lot of people didn't know I was Asian", Fresh Kid Ice said during an interview with Vice in 2016.
He was involved in a auto crash in 1988 and suffered a stroke on Thanksgiving in 2008.
Fresh Kid Ice is the second major rapper to face an untimely death in the last month - rapper Prodigy, best known as one half of the NY hip-hop duo Mobb Deep, died on June 20, aged 42.
