Busta Rhymes Says MegaUpload Was a Much Better Deal for Artists Than Spotify…

Not everyone thinks MegaUpload was such a bad thing. That includes Busta Rhymes, who recently came to the defense of recently-named MegaUpload CEO Swizz Beats, while pointing to a model that actually monetizes free downloads.  That’s a story that includes the unlaunched MegaBox, which planned to pay artists 90 percent of revenues (and even pay out on free downloads).  All without any major label involvement.

Through a series of extended tweets (through twi.me), Busta Rhymes said it out loud: MegaUpload was actually a better deal for artists than Spotify.

1st of all I am soooo proud of my brother @THEREALSWIZZZ 4 being apart of creating something (MEGAUPLOAD) that could create the most powerful way 4 artists 2 get 90% off of every dollar despite the music being downloaded 4 free…

With labels and companies doin’ deals with Spotify and many other companies like it who doesn’t give us shit…

[they] continue 2 do what they do and blatantly show us how much they value the artist with doing deals of such disrespect and lack of value 4 our content…

I am proud 2 stand next 2 my brother @THEREALSWIZZZ and fight the good fight…

Our freedom is truly being fucked with in a very significant way and I strongly suggest 2 all artists especially the 1’s Swizz repped 4 comes out & reps 4 him!!!
