DJ E-Z Rock dead at age 46
It's sad day for the world of hip-hop music with the untimely death of legendary hip-hop DJ E-Z Rock at the age of 46. No details have been announced on how the hip-hip artist, born Rodney Bryce, died, although the site AllHipHop News has stated that he had been ill and died of a "massive stroke". The news was announced on Twitter by Biz Markie ("R.I.P. TO EZ ROCK FROM ROB BASE AND EZ ROCK YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED.." and confirmed to Rolling Stone by MC Rob Base. DJ E-Z Rock was best known for his dance floor destroying 1988 hit “It Takes Two,” with longtime partner MC Rob Base, who he’d known since fourth grade. The hyped hit, which was produced by new jack swing legend Teddy Riley, featured a sample of Lyn Collin’s 1972 James Brown-produced song “Think (About It).” See the video below for the song It’s Takes Two.
