A-Keys husband and super producer Swizz Beatz may have gotten himself in some legal trouble behind the popular file-sharing website Megaupload where he is named as CEO. The site was SHUT DOWN Thursday (Jan. 19th) in a federal sting targeting illegal downloads.
Federal prosecutors pulled the plug on Hong Kong-based Megaupload.com, arrested four execs in New Zealand and unsealed an indictment charging seven people with content piracy causing losses of a half a billion dollars.
Sidebar: Who knew Swizzy owned that site? As a producer Swizz Beatz should know personally how illegal downloads not only hurt the music business but the artist as well!! Shame ON YOU Swizzy!
