One of the pioneers of the West Coast Electro and DJ scene, and one of the founding members of N.W.A., Arabian Prince can truly be credited with being partly responsible for creating the Gangsta Rap scene in the 80s. His production log includes many of the West Coast Electro hits of the era, including Panic Zone, Innovator, JJ Fad's Supersonic and more. He is also known as Professor X in the Electro Funk scene with the hit Professor X (Saga).
Arabian recently came out of musical retirement after spending some time developing his video game company. As he started making music again, he realized that he no longer needed his heaps of gear from times long gone. All he needs now is Reason. Arabian is currently producing and releasing music on Clone Records and Stones Throw Records.
