Swizz Beatz Addresses Megaupload Scandal, Says "Time Will Tell Everything"

Swizz Beatz vaguely addresses the legal fiasco surrounding Megaupload.

Swizz Beatz was recently targeted in the Megaupload scandal, with the U.S. Attorney's Office claiming that he refused to cooperate in the investigation and was employed as CEO of the company. During a recent interview with Al Lindstrom, Swizzy explained that he would never intentionally facilitate illegal downloading and that the company was unfairly targeted on account of the feds being unable to control them.

"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."

Swizz continued by explaining that "time will tell everything" and that he would not co-sign a site that served as a conduit to downloading illegal tracks. "My thing is, time will tell everything. People will see what’s what, who’s who, all of the shit here. I’m not going to sit here and answer all of those questions because I can’t. My track record speaks for itself. I ain’t never been on track record as a Grammy person or doing something ignorant. I’m in the business of inspiring, and I can’t be in the business of inspiring if I’m so-called robbing my friends. My friends know that."

    The government, Republicans and Democrats lobbied by groups like the RIAA mafia and the MPAA (ex-Sen. Chris Dodd, Democrat, stepped aside and immediately becomes an MPAA lobbyist), have been in full-swing exploiting the non-issue of copyright infringement to take away a free internet for everybody. The internet is the last shred of democracy and free information left uncontrolled by government and giant corporations, and you bet your ass they're fighting to take it away. The RIAA refuses to accept their stupid racket is long gone, and refuse to give up the old days when they strangled the music market for themselves, jacking up prices, and ripping off artists like vampire squids. So they band together an army of RIAA lawyers, which acts like a vicious mafia, using mafia tactics to threaten, extort, and scare people to make examples of them and forcing them to settle. Anyone who has the balls to fight back in court always loses because the RIAA lawyers simply delay, delay, and delay the case until you run out of money. They refuse to accept the internet, which they can't control, is how music and media is being distributed - physical media is dead and dying. On the other side, we have only a handful of conglomerates, a monopoly or duopoly in most cities big and small, controlling internet service, decided to take away net neutrality to claim it for themselves, and you can bet politicians and FCC officials are long bought-off to deliver this. A corporate-controlled internet looks like one where it's infinitely tiered like cable TV service so each person pays jacked-up prices for every bit of data they use, pay premiums to access different websites like YouTube, and have the power to censor, deny, and decide what you do or don't do on the internet. It's really cheap to upgrade their networks to provide much faster service for cheap, but they don't because there's no competition in this country and no regulation guaranteeing the best interests of us, consumers, is what matters. Go check out internet speeds and rates in places like South Korea, Japan, Sweden, whatever, and you'll notice just how much we're being ripped off.

    Just because he doesn't think the other companies are as bad, does it make it right? I don't think so.

    Why is everyone talking about that Nas song and not "On to the next one" which is one of the worst beats I've ever heard in life...Or that song with Eminem and Nicki Minaj...Summer on Smash isn't as bad as those.
