On Friday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.W.A. was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but an emergency involving Lyor Cohen unfortunately brought down everyone’s spirits.
According to Cohen’s Snapchat, he was hospitalized after suffering a pulmonary embolism, which is a blockage of an artery in the lungs.
Pigeons & Planes captured Cohen sharing the news, explaining that his son was the one who saved his life. “If it wasn’t for my son, and my best friend Norm, I would have been a goner… There’s actually nothing I could do. Anybody could get it. It’s a little blood clot that goes right up the body into the lungs and heart.”
Cohen does regularly exercise, and he was happy that he’s been adding that into his daily routine. He also told his followers that he’ll be getting out of the hospital soon.
