Worldstar Hip Hop Founder/CEO Lee “Q” O’Denat Passes Away At 43!

WorldStarHipHop founder Lee O’Denat — known as “Q” — has died … TMZ has learned.

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 today … although one source tells us Q died of a heart attack. He was 43.

My prayers and condolences go out to Q, his kids, family, and worldstar as they mourn. I can honestly say that I knew Q and he was always a respectful guy, with a great sense of humor, who helped me with many of my client projects. He will be greatly missed, may he rest in peace.
