Founder of WorldStarHipHop, Lee Q is dead at the age of 43.

Lee Odenat aka Q

TMZ reports that the face and CEO of WorldStarHipHop died in his sleep on Monday, January 23, 2017.

The top Hip-Hop website was founded by Q at age 33 back in  2005 with the legend posting mixtapes which quickly developed into a mash-up of videos, fight clips and other camera footage that served raw hip-hop.

O'Denat reportedly referred to the site as the "CNN of the Ghetto" and rightly so, considering the content the website produced and its target audience.

Q is survived by his wife, Brianna Padilla.

May his soul rest in peace.
