Q, the founder WorldstarHipHop.com, one the most popular Hip-Hop sites in the world died today (January 24).
Q, born Lee O’Denat, died in his sleep at the age 43, according to multiple reports.
“My condolences go out to his family. Q was an entrepreneur, a pioneer and all around great guy,” Kevin Black, former President WorldStarHipHop.com told AllHipHop.com.
The website was founded in 2005, with controversial fight videos, mixtapes, stripper videos and interviews with rappers.
“Hip-hop is for the sex, the drugs, the violence, the beefs, the culture,” Q told the New York Times in 2015. “That’s the competitiveness hip-hop, so I felt like the site needed to be R-rated.”
Before his untimely death, Q had been planning the launch “World Star TV,” which is a 10-episode weekly comedy/sketch series set to debut on February 3 on MTV2.
