Recently, Hip Hop Weekly had the exclusive opportunity to speak to Q of World Star about the recent hate he’s been receiving.
On a cold winter’s evening, the sit-down occurred in a Park Avenue hotel suite above the slushy streets of the Big Apple. The man born Lee Quinn O’Denat’s formidable size and presence was tempered by an aura of centered focus. Places taken at the table, interviewer and interviewee lined up their respective sights and delved into a vision that even schooled Bill O’Reilly’s pupils. Here’s a few excerpts of what they discussed:
On the recent hate he’s receiving:
“A lotta folks hate on me because of the way the site blew up, and since you’re number one, that’s what happens. Like Obama, he’s got hatin’. That’s the way it is. I’ve accepted it.”
On helping launching careers like Kat Stacks:
“People that have the talent and skill, it speaks for itself now because the video don’t lie, as far as the image, and people like to see video more and more. For the new artists comin’ up, like the Kat Stacks, the 50 Tysons, you can get instant fans real quick because people are drawn to anything that’s interesting to them.”
On the image of World Star:
“I try to portray the good, the bad and the ugly – that’s what I try to portray. It’s not just good, good, good. Hip Hop is a culture – a lifestyle. It’s not just a Black thing or an inner-city thing. It’s for anyone that can feel it in’em. It’s Hip Hop. It’s just swag.”
