DJ E-Z Rock, who partnered with Rob Base to form one of the most popular rap duos of the 1980s, died over the weekend, Rob Base's rep told TMZ.

E-Z Rock, real name Rodney Bryce, was 46-years-old. No other details were available.

"It Takes Two" was the duo's biggest hit, becoming a hip-hop classic and a requisite song at every Bar Mitzvah that took place in the late 80s and early 90s. Both the song, and the album it came from, hit platinum. 

Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock grew up together in Harlem and were friends since the fourth grade.

RIP. "It Takes Two" has to be one of if not the most recognizable and saturated rap songs of the 90's...

Reading the postsost of them are respectful. A couple are just asinine and show the mental state of a person whom knows absolutely nothing and probably needs help with words that are larger than 3 letters. So what is y he deal with my sistets boyfriends uncle twice removed made 4 billion dollars I'm twelve seconds. Blah, blah, blah. Are there no moderators to keep these waste of space scammers?
