R.I.P. DJ E-Z Rock

From Billboard:

Rodney “Skip” Bryce, the hip hop artist who as DJ E-Z Rock enjoyed a breakout in the late ‘80s with “It Takes Two”, has died at 46. At time of writing, there was no verifiable information on the cause of his death.

DJ E-Z Rock had the biggest hit of his career alongside fellow Harlem artist Rob Base on “It Takes Two,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Songs chart in 1988 and helped its parent album (also called “It Takes Two”) to platinum certification.

The song went on to be sampled by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Gang Starr and mashup artist Girl Talk, and has appeared in video games and movie soundtracks.
