25 Hip-Hop Artists People Think Are One-Hit Wonders (But Totally Aren't)

3. Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock

Major Hit: "It Takes Two" (1988)

Other Hit: "Joy and Pain" (1988)


Although they had one notable follow-up single, "Joy and Pain," Rob Base & D.J. EZ-Rock will forever be known for their Lyn Collins-influenced '80s party jam, "It Takes Two." Base's opening line ("I wanna rock right now") is certainly one of the best-known lyrics in hip-hop history, even if the Harlem duo itself is mostly remembered for that one big tune.
