He was also featured in early hip hop music videos like Afrika Bambaataa and The Soulsonic Force's "Planet Rock" and Malcolm McLaren's "Buffalo Gals".In 2004, he along with several other members of RSC were honored at the VH-1 Hip Hop Honors.Frosty Freeze still resides in New York City and still makes appearances at many hip hop/Bboy/Bgirl events in the NYC area and all over the country. Unfortunately Frosty Freeze has fallen extremely ill and is on life support as of March 27, 2008.
