Arabian Prince???

Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 9:46 AM

As much as i know N.W.A. included: Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, MC Ren, DJ Yella and one more guy....Arabian Prince.
So my questions are:
1. Who was "Arabian Prince"?
2. What happened to him? (Does he still raps?)

    He was member of NWA when they started, but he left because he wasnt really needed anymore i think
    He released some solo albums but ive never heard any of those


    If i remember correctly he is currently working with a Dutch record label

    Yep, I have a cassette tape somewhere of one of his albums.... I know he worked on some west coast "bionic" rap music before NWA but I only heard that from a neighbor who would blast it from his car all the time.... It wasn't a bitter separation, when he left NWA... I forget the line but I believe he even complimented NWA on "It's A Dope Thang," which is the only thing and song that I remember from the tape that I have... I think he also had a Jerry Curl....

    When i first heard of him i was laughing what is that name?
    I heard few songs of him it's cool classic hip hop.
    The only song he performs with NWA is Something 2 dance 2 in the album Straight outta of Compton, it was written by himself the D.O.C & Ice Cube but performs by Arabian Prince, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre & Eazy-E.
    & Panic Zone in The album N.W.A. and the Posse.
    He was a founding member of N.W.A. but when fellow member Ice Cube came back from the Phoenix Institute of Technology in 1988 he found himself to be surplus to the band — Eazy-E, Ice Cube and MC Ren were the main performers, DJ Yella was the turntablist and Dr. Dre was the main producer.
