A spokesperson for the producer later spoke to Billboard, confirming that his client was "the victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time". "Rumors have begun to circulate and first and foremost, we want to let everyone know that AraabMUZIK is currently alive and well," AraabMUZIK's spokesperson said. "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."

Rapper Avatar Darko, who has worked with AraabMUZIK tweeted about his friend, writing: "[Pray] for my bro Araab! He just got shot but he'll be alright! He's strong! 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!"
