Diplomats affiliate AraabMuzik is reportedly receiving immediate medical attention following a near-death shooting last night (February 25) in New York City.
Details of the life-threatening crime surfaced online early Friday (February 26).
Hip-hop producer AraabMuzik might have 9 lives — he was shot and wounded in Harlem Thursday night, his second such brush with death, police sources said.

An Araab representative eventually stepped forward with a statement on what went down.
“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.” (Billboard)
