AraabMUZIK was reportedly shot Wednesday night while out with friends. According to collaborator Avatar Darko, the assailants tried to rob the producer but “he ain’t come up off his sh*t so they tried get him outta there.” On his Instagram, Araab’s manager DukeDaGod posted the above image of the producer – real name Abraham Orellana – lying in a hospital bed, asking others to wish the producer a “healthy & pleasant recovery.”
A statement sent out by AraabMUZIK’s camp blamed the incident on the producer being “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“Rumors have begun to circulate and first and foremost, we want to let everyone know that AraabMUZIK is currently alive and well. He was out in his neighborhood last night with friends and unfortunately the victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is recovering now and police are investigating the crime. We appreciate all the concern and fan support and Araab is looking forward to a speedy recovery and returning to the stage as soon as he can.”
No word on extent of injuries or how long his recovery process will be.
