Remember that funny Megaupload song we saw in the beginning of December? The one that was taken down from YouTube by Universal Music Group under copyright law, and then contested by Megaupload and their lawyers? It left plenty of questions unanswered, including: How did Megaupload get all those artists to cosign?

In a shocking twist, Page Six reports that Swizz Beatz is the CEO of the company, and he's in a battle that has artists like Kanye West, will.i.am and Diddy in hot water with their label. Reps for the artists have not commented, but the matter is ongoing and will be settled in court.

One last question: Who actually penned the Megaupload song?

UPDATE: It's confirmed. On Megaupload's "About" page, Kasseem Dean a.k.a. Swizz Beatz is listed as the CEO.
