R.I.P E-Z ROCK – DJ for ROB BASE “IT TAKES TWO”

Rob Base and E-Z Rock both grew up in Harlem, becoming friends in the fourth grade. “Back then, there were other groups and we used to see other people perform,” E-Z Rock told Pennsylvania newspaper The Morning Call in 1991. “I bought a set of turntables and he bought a mic.” 

 Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock released their first single, “DJ Interview,” in 1986, but the 46-year-old Bryce cemented himself with 1988’s iconic track “It Takes Two.” Produced by Teddy Riley, the song blended hip-hop with house music and became a nationwide hit, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Songs chart. 

E-Z Rock’s cause of death was complications from diabetes.
