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. RIP”

We offer our deepest condolences to Q’s family & friends
