I used to cop "Rob Base", turn it into "EZ Rock"
Here begins Jay’s referencing of rappers' names, with their names interpreted in a way they make sense as words of their own
Rob Base and EZ Rock are a rap duo from the late 1980s, who are mainly famous for “It Takes Two”, a dance-inspired hip-hop track which ultimately went multi-platinum
Of course Jay means he used to buy cocaine (base) and turn into crack cocaine (rocks)
