Point Blank LA Instructor Profile: Arabian Prince (N.W.A., Rock & Roll Hall of Fame)

At Point Blank we pride ourselves on the quality of teaching you can expect here. There’s nothing wrong with learning about music the traditional way, but to us, there’s no substitute for real experience. That’s why you can rest assured that all of our expert instructors bring real-world experience of what it is to be a successful artist, and with it, the knowledge to help you carve your own path. Our latest instructor at Point Blank Los Angeles has made the kind of mark on music that most can only dream of, as part of the legendary hip-hop group NWA. Less known are the moves he’s made in the industry since leaving the group, but it all adds up to a man who knows how to make it in music as well as just about anyone. Introducing Arabian Prince!

Arabian Prince in his native LA

A songwriter, rapper, producer, DJ and technologist, Arabian Prince is best known for being a founding member of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group N.W.A. But even prior to that, he was pioneering west coast electro music much in the same way as Dr Dre did with his World Class Wreckin’ Cru. Arabian Prince left N.W.A though at the height of their fame, going on to carve his own, singular path.

Always fascinated by technology, (he took a very early laptop with him on N.W.A’s early tours) Arabian was drawn to working in video games and in the 90’s created a 3D animation and special effects studio, working with companies like Saban Entertainment and Fox and eventually working on 100+ video game titles for Fox Interactive and Vivendi Universal. As a consultant, Arabian has advised many companies on bridging the gap between technology and the youth, and he’s always striving to bring new product innovations to market.
