Sad News: WorldStarHipHop Founder Q Passes Away at 43

We are sad to report that WorldStarHipHop founder Lee “Q” O’Denat has died.

According to TMZ, the urban media mogul died in his sleep on Monday night; he was 43. An autopsy is scheduled for later today, but sources are attributing his passing to a heart attack.

Q founded the popular hip-hop website in 2005. The site started with mixtapes before diversifying with hip-hop videos, fight clips, and other extreme visuals.

In an interview with The New York Times in 2015, Q credited his rise to notoriety to hard work.

“They think it’s luck,” he said. “I don’t believe in luck. It’s hard work. Luck is when you get a scratch-off lotto and win five bucks, man. That’s luck.”

He is survived by three young children.
