AraabMuzik is recovering after he was shot earlier this week in an attempted robbery. His manager, DukeDaGod, posted an Instagram photo of the producer and MPC virtuoso in the hospital surrounded by a crew of his friends. "Everyone wish my brother @araabmuzik a healthy & pleasant recovery!!!! #Mvpofthempc #Soblessed," reads the post. Rapper Avatar Darko shed more light on the situation on Twitter. "My lil brodi too trill! They tried to rob him and he ain't come up off his shit so they tried get him outta there!" he wrote.

Though he's in the hospital, AraabMuzik – born Abraham Orellana – appears to be recovering nicely. "Rumors have begun to circulate and first and foremost, we want to let everyone know that AraabMuzik is currently alive and well," the producer's team said in a statement to Billboard. "He was out in his neighborhood [Wednesday] 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."

AraabMuzik's next show is scheduled for tomorrow at Bard College in Little Neck, New York. His latest tweet announced that he'll be playing Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, which will take place June 18th through June 25th.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
