Old School Rap: Arabian Prince – It Ain’t Tough
Found this clip from Arabian Prince, one of the original members of infamous gangster rap crew N.W.A. Originally released in 1984, and recently re-released on Stones Throw Records‘ old school retrospective Innovative Life, It Ain’t Tough is pure old school heat.
The clip is made up from footage from the classic West Coast hip hop documentary Breakin’ ‘n’ Enterin’ – check the link for more info and wild breakdancing footage.
I caught Arabian Prince rocking the decks live at Oxford Art Factory a few weeks ago, shit was wild. Plenty of old classics, and even some live tracks as his electro funk alter-ego Professor X. If you missed it, make sure you check out this clip from Professor X, live at Stereolize in Paris, 2005 for a little taste of the action!
