BREAKING NEWS: WorldStarHipHop Founder Lee “Q” O’Denat Dead at 43

Gigionthat Reports….WorldStarHipHop founder Lee “Q” O’Denat has died, TMZ reports. He was 43 years old. He died in his sleep on Monday night, according to TMZ. O’Denat started WorldStar as a mixtape-hosting site in 2005.

Ultimately, the site gained notoriety as a video aggregator, posting a variety of clips, notably fight videos. The term “WorldStar” has become shorthand for a moment that needs to be captured on video. It’s been used on HBO, and Childish Gambino framed a song around the phrase.

In a 2015 New York Times profile, O’Denat explained his vision for the site. “Hip-hop is for the sex, the drugs, the violence, the beefs, the culture,” he said. “That’s the competitiveness of hip-hop, so I felt like the site needed to be R-rated.”
