The Diplomat Records producer is currently recovering in hospital.
As reported by Complex, it seems producer Araabmuzik was shot after several unidentified men attempted to rob him in his native Rhode Island. Fortunately, his wounds aren't fatal, and the talented young musician is recovering in hospital as we speak.
Rapper and Diplomat Records A&R Duke Da God tweeted about the incident, encouraging everyone to wish Araab a healthy recovery. The tweet included an image of him in a hospital bed (view it in the gallery above). Seattle-based rapper Avatar Darko, who has collaborated with Araab in the past, also tweeted, confirming the attempted robbery. His reps have made a statement to Billboard:
“Rumors have begun to circulate and first and foremost, we want to let everyone know that AraabMUZIK is currently alive and well,” AraabMUZIK’s camp said in a statement. “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.”
Our thoughts go out to Araab and his friends and family. We wish him a speedy recovery, and assume this will be the case given the powerful music he creates:
