The producer for the likes of Harlem’s The Diplomats, Fabolous, Busta Ryhmes and others was with his friend James Malloy, 32, when they were shot in Araabmuzik‘s car.

His friend James Malloy was shot once in the right leg and is now in stable condition at St. Luke’s hospital.

According to Daily News sources, the pair had left a friend’s home around 7 to go to the ProPark America parking garage on W. 125th street. As they were leaving, two men approached the car using the ruse that Orellana had dropped something.

Once he rolled down the window the two men fired into the car and ran off. The police found three .380 caliber shell casings at the scene.

Worryingly this is not the first time that Araabmuzik has been shot. In May 2013 he was shot in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island in an apparent robbery attempt gone bad.

Araabmuzik has made a strong name for himself in the hip-hop community for producing beats for some of the biggest rappers around.

He has also branched out from behind the decks and performs live with his MPC (Music Production Center) drum machine, which relies on his incredibly quick hands. His beats have remained hip-hop, but he has experimented with some electronic influences over the past few years and even played at some EDM festivals like Electric Zoo.

Last year, he released two mixtapes: King and Goon Loops. His album, Dream World, is expected later this year.
