Swizz Beatz named CEO of Megaupload [Videos]

I'm not even going to explain what Megaupload is. So don't send me no mail asking, certain igorance is just unforgiveable. The news is that Swizz Beatz, has been mamed the C.E.O of Megaupload. Which would explain some of the random Megaupload celebrity endorsement song and the even more random, Kanye West, Megaupload testimonial.

Swizz Beatz has Sean “Diddy” Combs, Kanye West and in hot water with their label by getting them to promote his site, MegaUpload. The CEO of the Internet company, Beatz — also a recording artist, producer, DJ and head of design at Lotus — persuaded the stars to appear in a “Mega Song” video promoting his service, intended to send large media files. The catch is the music industry has been fighting against file sharing, accusing the services MegaUpload offers of supporting piracy.
…But after the starry promo appeared on YouTube last month, Diddy, Kanye and’s label, Universal Music Group, issued a “take-down notice” to YouTube, saying the artists’ performances were unauthorized. Their individual reps followed up, sources say. Mega-Upload fired back with a lawsuit against Universal to stop it from blocking distribution of the video. A Mega rep told us: “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.” – NY Post

Damn how many things is Swizz capable of doin all at once?
