Being a hip hop star is not always the the safest profession. 

Abraham Orellana, the hip-hop producer known as AraabMUZIK, has been shot and is hospitalized.

Details are still sketchy about how and where he was shot. Orellana's publicist said in a statement late Thursday that he is "currently alive and well" after being shot Wednesday night, noting he was in the wrong place at the wrong time while hanging out with friends. Police are investigating.

The statement said the Dominican/Guatemalan rapper was in his neighborhood when he was shot, but didn't specify a city. Orellana's hometown is Providence, R.I.

The producer's manager, George Moore, a record label executive and producer known as DukeDaGod posted on Twitter a picture of Orellana in a hospital bed Thursday with the words: "Everyone wish my brother (at)araabmuzik a healthy & pleasant recovery!!!!"
