Right about now
You are about to be possessed
By the sounds of M.C. Rob Base
And D.J. E-Z Rock
Today we've got a sad dedication for Song of the Day on John's World. I am saddened to report that D.J. E-Z Rock, of this song's fame, passed away suddenly yesterday. He was only 46 years old.
Rob Base and D.J. E-Z Rock weren't the most popular or enduring rap stars out on the scene when this came out in 1988, but It Takes Two was, and still is da bomb! In fact, I once named it the 4th greatest rap/dance song of all time. As a club-goer and a longtime deejay myself, I can attest to the popularity of this song, filling up dance floors whenever it was played, with everybody singing every word to this catchy and funky song. So rest in peace D.J. You will be remembered! As for you, enjoy...
Here's a second song that came off the same album as the previous one. It wasn't nearly as popular, but I always loved it, too...
Joy, and pain
Like sunshine and rain
