Hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz was recently said to be the new secret partner of one of the Internet’s most used file-sharing company, MegaUpload. However, recent reports showed that the news wasn’t true.Â Forbes reported that Swizz does not appear on any of the documents filed by the U.S. Department Of Justice and therefore FBI is not after him. Kim Dotcom was named as the owner of 68% of Megaupload.
Notably, ‘Mega Song’ came out recently which featured appearances from some of the biggest names in glamor world including Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, P. Diddy and will.i.am.
The track sparked controversy as it was the celebration party of Megaupload which made people believe that these stars were promoting online piracy. Megaupload is one of the many websites that allow download of illegal pirated contents.
While Swizz Beatz may own something in the company, his name is not in the documents so he’s still safe.
