It was announced today that WorldStarHipHop founder, Lee O’Denat (also known as “Q“) has passed away.
According to reports, the 43-year-old entrepreneur died in his sleep on Monday (January 23). Q was best known for being the founder and CEO of Worldstar, a hip hop website he and his wife started in 2005. Initially the site was intended to be a hub for rap artists to host their mixtapes. However, throughout the years,’WSHH’ grew in popularity due to its taboo content, ranging from fight footage to its popular “WorldStar Candy” video vixen clips. Even P.Diddy premiered his Ciroc vodka campaign on WSHH exclusively.
Although it’s been reported that an autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of Q’s death, sources say tell TMZ that it appears Lee passed from a heart attack.
Many fans have taken to Q’s personal and business pages to express their condolences to his family, and “yell out,” the ever popular phrase “Worldstarrrrrrrr,” in the comments section.
Rest in peace, Lee.
Losing a loved one isn’t easy. Just ask “LAHHH” star, Nikki Mudarris, who opened up recently about losing her brother.
