NEW YORK, April 28 (UPI) -- DJ E-Z Rock died Sunday at age 46.

Born Rodney Bryce, the musician was one half of hip-hop duo Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock. A spokesperson for Base has confirmed Bryce's death to Rolling Stone, but the cause of death has not been revealed.

Base and Bryce came to fame with their 1988 hit "It Takes Two." The song samples 1972 Lyn Collins hit "Think (About It)," and is infused with hip-hop and house music elements. "It Takes Two" became a pop culture staple, and Snoop Dogg, Gang Starr and Girl Talk are just some of the artists who have sampled the track in their own work.

Several hip-hop artists have taken to social media to express their condolences.



Base himself has posted a picture of Bryce with the caption, "R.I.P Skip (DJ E-Z Rock) my friend. My brother."
