As you may have read, the Feds have decided to drag Swizz Beatz name into their witchhunt against download site Megaupload. In part 1 of his interview with AlLindstrom.com, he speaks very generally about the takedown of the site and vaguely promises that his role with the company and more will be revealed in time.
I for one applaud Swizz for being one of the only major label artists in the world who has had the balls to speak his mind on the subjects of file sharing and technology as it relates to music rather than just regurgitating RIAA falsehoods. That said, somebody needs to feed him some talking points before he opens his mouth because in this clip he states that you “can’t go there and download anything, it’s Megaupload not Megadownload”, which is, of course, not true.
