Biography

He started working with Bobby Jimmy & the Critters in 1984. He also produced the hit single and album for JJ Fad, "Supersonic."

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.

After leaving N.W.A., Arabian Prince began his solo career. His first solo album Brother Arab was released in 1989, although it sold poorly.

Arabian Prince continued his solo career and released his fourth album Where's My Bytches in 1993, which was his last album of the 1990s.

He recently started releasing music again with his Professor X project on the Dutch label Clone records. In 2007, he performed as a DJ on the 2K Sports Holiday Bounce Tour with artists from the Stones Throw label. In 2008, Stones Throw released a compilation of his electro-rap material from the 1980s.[1] One of his songs was included on the 2007 video game College Hoops 2K8.
