Lyor Cohen is recovering in a hospital today (April 9) after suffering a pulmonary embolism. The legendary music executive, whose 300 Entertainment roster includes Young Thug, Fetty Wap and Migos, shared his current predicament via Snapchat.
“If it wasn’t for my son, and my best friend Norm, I would have been a goner,” said Cohen, who is seen wearing an oxygen mask, in one of his video messages.
According to Cohen, who is 56, it was his keeping in shape by exercising every day that enabled him to survive. He claims that according to his doctors if he had waited four more hours to seek medical attention he would have been a “goner.”
A pulmonary embolism is the blockage of a blood vessel in the lungs, usually by a bloodclot, that can cause death if large enough not treated immediately. It’s what killed Heavy D.
In an ironic twist, Cohen’s doctor’s first name is Khalid. “You’re not DJ Khaled are you?” asked Cohen.
Seems like Cohen is on his way to speedy recovery.
