Editorial Reviews

ARABIAN PRINCE'S STORY IS UNDENIABLE. His life reflects the ambition and innovation of the early West Coast hip-hop scene, from his days amongst the likes of electro-rap legends Egyptian Lover and the World Class Wreckin Cru to his work with N.W.A. His biography closely parallels the progression of Southern Californian hip-hop. From Arabian's transition as an electro DJ into one of he West Coast's first hip-hop stars... In the shift from electro-rap to the gangsta-rap music that transformed the world. This anthology, a collection of his groundbreaking electro-rap work recorded between 1984 and 1989, not only compels the listener through sound, but through prose. Through Arabian Prince's music and life story, Stones Throw Records is proud to present a glimpse into an overlooked chapter in hip-hop's history.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By David M. Madden on November 6, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Just because you read "worked on N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton" does not mean you're about to hear the lesser-known KRS-One: titles such as "Freak City" and "Situation Hot" should tip you off that this is a guy who should have been the DJ in Purple Rain, spinning nasty 808 electro for dance floor ménage a trois scenes. On "Take You Home Girl", AP demandingly whispers "my only desire was to take her home and set her body on fire (overwhelmed diva says "okay, I'll go")". Keeping with the running `80s theme that nerdy librarians are really sex-crazed chicken-heads, the title track details the evolution of a closet freak whose new party life outgrows her Dr. Frankenstein ("I never should have put her in my innovative world"). Meanwhile, the beat throughout is in full effect, setting the stage for the `90s New York club scene where an MC's shout of "scratch, scratch, scratch!" is followed by a screaming guitar solo. Sinister.
