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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
