News: Swizz Beatz The CEO Of Megaupload!
Remember how bizarre that Megaupload song/video was? We have now learned that the man behind all this is none other that Swizz Beatz. That’s right. The New York Post is calling Swizz Beatz the CEO of Megaupload. The story is that Swizz got Diddy, Kanye West, and Will.i.am in trouble with their label after they supported Megaupload in the bizarre commercial I just spoke about. Universal Music Group issued YouTube a “take down notice” claiming that the artists’ performances were unauthorized. Swizz and Megaupload then fired back with a lawsuit. A rep for the company tells the NY Post that, “We have never received any word that any artist has [individually] filed a take-down . . . [we have] legally binding agreements with the performers that appear in the video . . . They promised that they had the rights to enter into that agreement and it’s not interfering with any third-party rights.”
