Talk about a chance of fate. Kind of like a Westcoast 5th Beatle (4th on the left in the picture). Arabian Prince aka Professor X was an original member of N.W.A. Prince joined N.W.A. three years after graduating Inglewood High School. He wanted to be an artist in N.W.A. but when fellow member Ice Cube came back from Arizona University in 1988 he found himself without a place. Eazy-E, Ice Cube and MC Ren were the main performers, DJ Yella was the turntablist and Dr. Dre was the producer.

Over the course of his career Prince transitioned from an electro DJ into one of the West Coast's first hip-hop stars. Shifting from electro-rap to the gangsta-rap. Many of his tracks were burried until now. Stones Throw is giving him his proper respect with Innovative Life: The Anthology. Its a release of his electro-rap material from the 1980s. Check out a track:
