Let’s Hit The Beach


It’s hard to believe it’s nearly two years since I posted about Arabian Prince’s Innovative Life anthology coming out on Stones Throw.

This easter, when I stopped through LA, me & Mashi dropped by what we thought would be an Arabian Prince beach party in Malibu. It turned out to be a guerilla music video shoot for a remix of Arabian’s classic Let’s Hit The Beach.


Arabian pointed out Dr Dre’s shimmering white house a little further along the coast, while some LA girls in short shorts sipped drinks from a cooler filled with powerade and aeroplane-sized bottles of malibu.

The director filmed everything on a tiny point-and-click camera, on an otherwise deserted beach, as the track pumped out of a laptop connected to an old ghetto blaster.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of Sawyer, the handsome 11-year-old LA pointer dog who had never been to the beach before.
