As you can see, it featured big names in the entertainment business like Kanye West, Diddy, Will.i.am, Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, Serena Williams, Macy Gray Lil Jon, Floyd Mayweather, The Game, Kim Kardashian, Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown and Swizz’s wife Alicia Keys. All of which supported the site. UMG said that they didn’t give any of their artists approval to endorse any other company — especially one that has a reputation of hijacking albums illegally. So now, they are suing Swizz Beatz.
Four indivutuals have been arrested and seven other indicted on charges that inclue “conspiracy to commit racketeering and criminal copyright infringement”.

But not long after the site was shutdown by the government, backlash erupted a with hack attack.
Shits getting serious. These sites will disappear one by one.
