CYPRESS HILL associate and sometime porn film actor SONDOOBIE of Latino hip hop group FUNKDOOBIEST has been shot during a botched robbery in LOS ANGELES.

According to reports from the US, Doobie, real name Papi Chulo, was shot twice in the stomach when a man attempted to steal his watch outside a barber's in LA last week. He was taken to hospital with wounds to the lower stomach, where he is expected to make a speedy recovery.

Funkdoobiest were slated to release their fourth album, the follow-up to 1998's 'Funkdoobiest', later this year.

DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill produced the band's acclaimed first album, 'Which Doobie U Be', in 1993.

Chulo has since built up a successful second career as an actor in adult entertainment films.
