Lee O’Denat better known as “Q” — the Founder & CEO of, made his mark in journalism by changing the exploitation of videos and how they’re viewed. was created in 2005 as a mixtape download portal but was then changed into a video streaming portal. Over the years the site expanded into chopping videos and even streaming Worldstar premiere videos for hot songs.

Through his endeavors of becoming a self-made media mogul & an entrepreneur, Q founded the idea by researching how much hype Youtube had gained over the years off of videos with censorship. On the contrary WorldStarHipHop was the complete opposite, showing the good, the bad & the ugly. Growing up in the hood, he knew that not everyone’s voices are heard so he helped those get their stories told. Just the word has become a verb, if there’s controversy there’s no doubt that someone will yell out “WorldStar.”  His contribution to social media pretty much laid out the formula for you to feel as a celebrity in some way shape or form. Forever being known for his humor Lee was very well-known amongst the hip-hop community.
