Back in 1984, Wong Won formed 2 Live Crew with fellow artists Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee. The group broke into hip hop scene in Miami and captured audiences with their sexually graphic rap lyrics. Their most popular yet controversial album As Nasty As They Wanna Be, which featured their smash hit, “Me So Horny,” became the first album to ever be deemed legally obscene by the United States government.
We would like to send our deepest condolences to Christopher Wong Won’s family during this difficult time.
