UPDATE: Swizz Beatz paid AraabMuzik a visit and posted a photo of his supportive appearance to Instagram, wishing his fellow producer well. Take a look at the image below.
AraabMuzik was taken to the hospital on Wednesday evening after he was shot in an attempted robbery. New York Daily News reports that his representatives told the Associated Press that he is “alive and well.” His rep continued, saying, “He was out in his neighborhood 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.”
HotNewHipHop reports: “The shooting took place at around 7pm at ProAmerica parking garage on W. 125th St. Orellana [AraabMuzik] and Malloy were on their way to exiting the garage when two men approached the driver’s seat window. One of the suspects reportedly convinced Orellana, who was driving, that he had dropped something, prompting the producer to roll down the window. The shots were fired immediately after the window went down, and the suspects fled on foot.”
He underwent surgery as soon as he arrived at the hospital, receiving treatment for gunshot wounds to his jaw and right arm. A bullet also reportedly grazed his head. AraabMuzik’s rep said, “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.”
