*Hip-hop personality Archbishop Don “Magic” Juan, the reformed pimp who has become Snoop Dogg’s best friend and “spiritual advisor,” is recovering after undergoing emergency surgery for a blood clot, reports TMZ.

Juan was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday (Aug. 30). The blood clot was successfully removed from his leg the following day and he is now on the mend, according to the website.

Born Donald Campbell in Chicago, Don “Magic” Juan has had several supporting roles in music, videos, and live stage shows of established rap artists, including a remix of 50 Cent’s “P.I.M.P.”, (as well as being featured in the music video), and a spoken-word interlude on Da Brat’s album “Unrestricted.”

He is also featured in Twista’s song “Pimp On” from the Kamikaze album, and “Bo$$ Playa” from Snoop Dogg’s album “Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss.” Juan can also be seen as part of Snoop’s entourage in movies such as “Starsky & Hutch” and “Old School.”
