Sermon, 42, is one half of the legendary New York group EPMD along with Parrish Smith who rose to fame in the late 1980s with their debut album “Stricly Business.”
The hip-hop community has been hit hard when it comes to rappers and their health. Sermon’s heart attack comes just days after rap legend Heavy D passed away after having “flu like” symptoms and several weeks after rapper Rick Ross had two seizures in one day.
