AraabMuzik Experienced Second Brush with Death Last Night
Abraham Orellana aka AraabMuzik is recovering at Harlem Hospital today, February 26th, after being admitted for bullet wounds and undergoing surgery. Last night in Harlem, the 26-year-old producer was shot in the jaw and right arm, and a bullet also grazed his head.
AraabMuzik and his friend James Malloy, 23, were leaving a friend's house. They were in Malloy's BMW, with AraabMuzik behind the wheel, exiting the ProPark America parking garage on W. 125th St.
Two men approached the driver's side, tricked AraabMuzik into opening the window by telling him he had dropped something, and then opened fire into the vehicle around 7pm. Malloy, who is on parole for conspiracy, was shot in the right leg but is also in stable condition.
According to reports, the suspects are believed to have taken a livery cab to the scene before fleeing on foot, and police found 3 .380 caliber shell casings.
This is AraabMuzik's second brush with death. In May of 2013, he was also shot in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island during an attempted robbery. The photo below, which was posted by darealdukedagod on Instagram the next day, shows the producer recovering in the hospital surrounded by friends.
Known as "The MVP of the MPC", AraabMuzik is one of best producers and DJs to ever make live beats and instrumentals on a Music Production Center drum machine.
