It’s hard to believe, but araabMUZIK has been putting in work on the boards for damn near a decade already. Sometime around the middle of the previous decade we started to hear his signature production style on mixtapes and street singles from various Dipset affiliates, and by the time Cam’s Crime Pays album dropped in 2009, he had made a name for himself as a guy you could trust to give you a banger.
