Happy Birthday Rob Base!

Rob Base, together with DJ E-Z Rock, created one of hip-hop’s greatest, most indelible singles with their iconic 1988 hit “It Takes Two.”   The pair achieved widespread national fame with the infectious single, and the song has been sampled by a plethora of artists and producers in hip-hop ranging from Gang Starr, Snoop Dogg and DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince to name a few, and both the single and the album of the same title went platinum.

Not relegated to just hip-hop circles, “It Takes Two” has been featured in several other media like being featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the movies Iron Man 2 and as part of the official trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Happy Birthday, Rob Base!
