The Daily Grind Video

Erick Sermon sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community yesterday as his close friend, DJ Scratch, tweeted that Erick had suffered from a heart attack.

But, we spoke exclusively with Erick Sermon this afternoon who assured us he is alive and well. He said…

“I’m good! I got two more tests on Monday and Tuesday then I’m home hopefully on Wednesday.”

DETAILS: WE PRAY! Erick Sermon From EPMD Suffers Heart Attack

The 42-year-old singer is one half of the legendary New York group EPMD along with Parrish Smith.

After the passing of Heavy D earlier this week, the hip-hop community has been in mourning and may not have been able to handle another tragedy.

We’re beyond happy to hear that Erick is doing well. Our prayers are still with him, though, as we wish him well during a speedy recovery.
