Rhythm Roulette: araabMUZIK


For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal linked up with araabMUZIK.

If you start making music for the Diplomats before you’re supposed to graduate from high school, you better pray that you’re consistently at the top of your game. That’s what araabMUZIK has been doing and then some. The Rhode Island producer has made a name for himself, in more than one way. His live MPC sets are dizzying and his imagination behind the boards is still expanding. He also miraculously survived a gunshot to the head in an attempted robbery in Harlem earlier in February. But he pushed through and released his album Dream World in July and produced Joe Budden’s last album Rage & The Machine.

As you can assume, it was only a matter of time before we got araab for Rhythm Roulette. We hit up Moodies Records in the Bronx and ended up with CDs from Blue Magic, Diana Ross & The Supremes, and The Dramatics (he’s not messing with vinyl). Then back at the studio with his AKAI MPC,
araabMUZIK chops up samples and does what he does best. Layer after layer, he builds in his signature sound and producer drops for what could be the intro to the next Dipset album.

Praying For A Speedy Recovery: AraabMuzik Shot, Survives Robbery Attempt



The producer was in the “wrong place at the wrong time,” his rep tells Billboard.

Producer and MPC wizard AraabMUZIK was shot during an attempted robbery, according to several tweets from the musician’s collaborators.


DukeDaGod, the musician’s manager, posted an Instagram photo of a somber group surrounding AraabMUZIK, born Abraham Orellana, in a hospital bed.


“Everyone wish my brother @araabmuzik a healthy & pleasant recovery!!!! #Mvpofthempc #Soblessed,” he wrote.

On Thursday evening, a rep for the musician confirmed the news to Billboard.


“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.”

Earlier on Thursday, rapper Avatar Darko, who has worked with AraabMUZIK on tracks such as the recent “Vampire,” shed light on the situation on Twitter.




“[Pray] for my bro Araab! He just got shot but he’ll be alright! He’s strong!” Darkowrote. “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 meant to be here! Foh!”

AraabMUZIK’s most recent tweet was posted early on Thursday, just after midnight — an announcement that he’d be at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, which kicks off June 21.
