Lyor Cohen Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Lyor Cohen has been actively involved with hip hop at various top labels for over 30 years, as the business grew in the margins of pop culture to the mainstream. He began by managing exceptionally successful rappers for initiating business Rush Productions, subsequently led Def Jam Recordings, the hip hop music genre’s top record label at that time, “the most significant black music business since Motown” according to Newsweek.

After Def Jam, Cohen successively assumed the direction of two of the music industry’s leading labels – the Island Def Jam Music Group, as well as the Warner Music Group — which signify popular musicians of music genres (including rap, rock, and country). Cohen’s closest associates have contained his longtime pal and partner Russell Simmons, rapper Jay Z and Atlantic Records chairman Julie Greenwald (both of whom maintain Cohen as a mentor), and Jon Bon Jovi. In September 2012 Cohen stepped down from the Warner Music Group. Although he’s not yet declared his next enterprise, Cohen stays—in the view of Complex magazine — “one of the most strong ‘jobless’ men on the planet.” Then he began the record label 300 Entertainment in 2013.
