Random throwback story – Lyor Cohen, a University Of Miami graduate

lyorum

Random fact, but Lyor Cohen, hip-hop music mogul and current Chairman/CEO at Warner Music Group, was actually a graduate of the University of Miami – the School of Business to be exact. He attended the school from 1977 – 1980. I definitely want to give a shout to the homie Sean for putting me on to this because its kinda dope. He was telling me that Lyor came to the campus to speak sometime ago and mentioned that Lyor was telling a story about how he was living on campus but a goal of his was to raise enough money and move out of the dorms to his own place in Coconut Grove (of all places). So he got a lemonade stand of some sort to sell drinks at one of the local festivals at the time to make some extra money and hopefully move out. Well, $4,000-5,000 later, and homie had enough to cover his moving expenses. But yeah, good stuff. Thanks again to Sean for the heads up.
