BREAKING NEWS: Founder “Q” Dead At Age 43


(AllHipHop News) Q, the founder, one of 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 of 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 of told

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 of hip-hop, so I felt like the site needed to be R-rated.”

Before his untimely death, Q had been planning the launch of “World Star TV,” which is a 10-episode weekly comedy/sketch series set to debut on February 3 on MTV2.

“God bless ya family & friends. You was a real solid, stand-up dude,” Atlanta rapper T.I. said. “We can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for all of US!!! You were always pleasant & positive through all the madness. You built a brand that changed the course of culture. Your legacy will live on. On behalf of The Harris Family, BankRoll Mafia & The Hustle Gang, We offer our truest & deepest condolences. With Love & Respect. Rest Easy King. #RIPQ.”

“RIP to my guy Q@worldstar we got some years in. Great, Great, Great Dude,” said Charlamagne Tha God. “One of those moments where you don’t cry because it’s over, you smile because it happened. SMH. Brother was already up but he had some phenomenal things cooking.”

    Talk about mixed emotions. RIP to a man who died way before he should have however as much as I love Hip Hop & Entrepreneurism that site shows all of the worst in Black People!!!!


        I don’t know if you are serious or trying to be funny!!!! He gets the ULTIMATE PROPS from me as a Bu$ine$$ Man. Some of the best businesses are based on a great idea mixed with perfect timing & an endless supply of product, however we are currently living in a “Fame/Celebrity” driven society which means that people with a lack of common sense, moral’s, decency, intelligence or dignity have absolutely NO SHAME at all with showing the world who they are no matter how bad it makes them look or us as people. If you want to show the world that “we” are savages & don’t care about anything then how do we as people expect other’s to see us as equal’s or to not be threatened by our existence?

      2. That’s just how the internet is people want to see wild ish and it’s not only black people but for some reason blacks incriminate themselves more then anyone, Q didn’t force anyone to do the dumb ish all he did was broadcast it for views, and weather he broadcasts or not the dumb ish is still happening and most likely some white man would broadcast it anyway .

      3. Everything that Q has put up on worldstar comes from youtube, he just made youtube look black, or better yet minority with worldstar and made a profit. Also, the site shows more than ignorance, it’s also a platform for up and coming hopefuls (black, white, asian, etc). RIP Q

  2. Like him or not, he was a pioneer, first in mixtapes and then again in viral videos. He changed our entire culture twice in his lifetime. How many of us have done it even once? Rest in Power Bro!
