Lyor Cohen Recovering After Near Death Caused By Pulmonary Embolism

Saturday (April 9th) legendary rap executive Lyor Cohen suffered a close call after vessels in his lungs became blocked. Lyor has been in the rap industry for decades working with artist such as Jay-Z, Young Thug, Fetty Wap, Redman, Method Man, DMX, Kanye West and countless others. VLAD TV Reported:

The 56-year-old exec expressed with labored breathing through an oxygen mask, “If it wasn’t for my son, and my best friend Norm, I would have been a goner.” Cohen also went on to detail that although he works out everyday to keep in shape and maintain a balanced lifestyle, had he waited just four more hours to be seen he would have met the same fate as Heavy D back in 2011 when he passed from the same complications.


We wish Cohen a speedy recovery and more years of success. We’ve also listed some pics below of Lyor and his star studded pals.
