10. "I wanna rock right now/I'm Rob Base and I came to get down." - Rob Base
Song: "It Takes Two" (1988)
Album: It Takes Two
With a few simple declarative statements of purpose, Rob Base kicked off the anthem of the summer of '88. This is what I want to do; this is who I am. The opening of "It Takes Two" cuts sharply and immediately to the marrow of what rap is all about.
