Lee O’Denat’s prominence in the world of online media has been met with controversy over the years, mostly due to the nature of his site’s content, although the cultural impact and overall rags-to-riches story is undeniable, no matter what side of the coin you land on.
WorldStarHipHop began as another web venture in 2005 for O’Denat, who was looking to capitalize on the emergence of blog platforms at the time. It wasn’t until a few years after launching and yielding little results, that Lee noticed how important video content would be, especially after the emergence of smartphone capabilities.
After dropping out of high school, working seemingly endless minimum wage jobs, and even having to pawn his son’s video games to make end’s meet, the man affectionately known as ‘Q’ finally caught a break. Reply All chronicles this story of triumph and tragedy in its 89th episode, available above for your listening enjoyment.
