2 Live Crew's Fresh Kid Ice on Getting Arrested "Just 'Cause the Album Was Deemed Obscene"

Fresh Kid Ice is the only member of 2 Live Crew to appear on every 2 Live Crew album.

He's one of three founding members who got together in a dorm room at an Air Force base in Riverside, California, started rocking shows in Miami, moved permanently to the 305, and took sexplicit bass music around the world.

Now 2 Live Crew is back with a new album, Turn Me On, that features cameos by Trick Daddy, Trina, E-40, Too Short, Insane Clown Posse, and production from Pretty Tony and Mannie Fresh.

Here's what Fresh Kid Ice had to say about booty bass, performing on top of speakers, and getting arrested for making music.
