Frosty Freeze R.I.P.

Frosty Freeze, also known as "The Freeze To Please," "Mr. Freeze"(born Wayne Frost on 8 December 1963, died April 3, 2008 in New York City, New York, U.S.) was a legendary old school hip hop B-Boy best known worldwide as a member of the second generation of the acclaimed hip hop/Breakin' crew, The Rock Steady Crew.

As a member of RSC, he was known for his comedic, highly acrobatic but yet fearless and inventive style, due to his trademark move, "The Suicide", also known as "The Death Freeze Drop" (a move that he created accidentally by attempting a poorly executed backflip and landing on his back).

Featured in such Hip Hop Classic films such as Wild Style and Style Wars, Freeze was the eccentric character that was to many the first face of B-Boys and break dancers to the world as the popularity of the films went global.

Freeze died Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Wayne Frost 1963-2008. R.I.P.
