    He and Rob Base made "It Takes Two" -- as iconic as any song in the rap canon.

    Details are somewhat sketchy: http://www.blackmediascoop.com/dj-e-z-rock-dead-at-46/

    "Joy and Pain" was a pretty big hit, too, but nowhere near the same stratosphere as It Takes Two.

    It Takes Two was rated as one of the top 10 rap songs of all-time...

    I can't say I disagree...

    What do you call that backround yelling in that song? I remember it annoyed a lot of people back in the day. I always have liked it.

    From a James Brown song.

    Yeah! WHOO! Yeah! WHOO!

    It's a sample from a James Brown track. Play James Brown's greatest hits and you'll go, "Hey. I recognize that drum solo on this-and-this and that vocal on that-and-that." Very heavily sampled back in the day.
