Swizz Beatz has been the main target of the U.S. Attorney's Office, who are trying to use him as a scapegoat to prosecute MegaUpload on U.S. soil.
During an interview with Allindstrom.com, Producer/Entrepreneur Swizz Beatz talks about some of his various businesses, including the much publicized site, MegaUpload.
While he doesn't speak on his full business relationship with the company, he gives a few reasons on why he teamed up with the company. He also says why he thinks the site was shut down.
"I'm a fan of music. I'm a fan of people that work hard and I would never be a part of anything that's taking anything from an artist when I fight so hard to give so much too the artist. What I was doing, I was giving artists 90 percent of their shit," he said. "Sometimes, when something is so powerful and people can't control it, that type of attack happens and you see that happen with multiple things in life. You see things that are shut down that are unexplainable. I'm like, yo, that company ain't never been sued for any of those things. You can't go there and download any of those things. It's MegaUpload, not MegaDownload. There's other companies doing ten times worse than that, and they ain't getting touched."
