Yesterday, while the hip hop community was consumed with all that was going down with Wale and Meek Mill, 300 Entertainment’s Lyon Cohen participated in a Reddit AMA with users. Allowing all users and fans to ask him any questions they had, the record executive revealed all kinds of information, both label-based, artist-based, and even personal. There were a few highlights amongst his answers in the mix of hundreds of users’ submissions, including the state of Fetty Wap’s career after his motorcycle accident, Young Thug’s album, as well as who he chooses between both Biggie and Tupac.
Lyor Cohen took some brief time in his questions to address Fetty Wap, who was originally set to perform at the Powerhouse concert tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. When asked if the rapper will show up, Lyor responded, “you’ll have to wait and find out,” with a winking face next to it. Another fan also implied that Fetty had been taken off the bill, questioning if he would be performing in Philadelphia in the near future. Lyor commented saying not only does Fetty want to perform in the major city, but he even may have a U.K. tour planned for January 2016 in the upcoming year.

The executive was also asked about Young Thug’s album, Hytunes, and when it would be coming out, to which he replied, “if I knew, I would be happy to tell you.” Users were also pretty interested in Migos comments about not being part of the label anymore, which Lyon shut down in a previous interview. Lyon continued on the statements saying that “Migos is one of our most important artists” to the label.
On top of everything else, on a personal level, Cohen also discussed his thoughts on who he would choose between Tupac and Biggie, to which he said he would choose both because he is greedy. He also chose Ed Sheeran over Sam Smith as far as artistry. Lastly, a fan was curious to see who Lyon thought gave the best live performance that he has seen, to which he responded with Travi$ Scott, who has been known to give very enthusiastic shows to turned up crowds.
