Earlier today, Rob Base broke the news on his Facebook that his PNC and fellow Harlem native DJ EZ Rock has passed away. Rob posted the following on his Facebook page: “RIP Skip (DJ EZ Rock) friends since 4th grade, I’m really going to miss you.”
Although details are very scarce on the cause of death, tributes have been pouring in from many Hip-Hop artists. We send our deepest condolences to EZ Rock’s friends and family.
R.I.P. TO EZ ROCK FROM ROB BASE AND EZ ROCK YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED. .
