REST IN PEACE : WorldStarHipHop Founder & CEO Lee O’Denat AKA Q Dies At 43

    WorldStarHipHop was like the black YouTube in my eyes. Granted, most of the time it displayed ratchet behavior within the black community. However it also gave unsigned artists the opportunity to shine.
    TMZ reports WorldStarHipHop founder Lee "Q" O'Denat has died:
    We're told Q, the face and CEO of WorldStar, died in his sleep Monday night. Q founded the premiere hip-hop website in 2005 when he started posting mixtapes, which gradually progressed into a mash-up of hip-hop videos, fight clips and other outrageous camera footage. An autopsy is scheduled for later Tuesday ... although one source tells us Q died of a heart attack. He was 43. RIP

    After interviewing my mother and father for A Seat At The Table, it feels like full circle to have chosen my sister to interview me for @InterviewMag.
