Once upon a time, there was a website called Myspace where artists uploaded their music for fans to hear. Now according to the once popular social media hub, any music uploaded between 2003 and 2015 is gone.

Remember Myspace, the social media precursor to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat? Well, it must be 2005 because Twitter users went back into a time warp to discuss the network, which had it trending this morning.

Yeah, we forgot about MySpace, too. The once massive bastion of early 2000’s social media, and struggle rappers and would be THOTs (male and female), was just purchased by Time Inc., technically. 

Veteran journalist Elliott Wilson made due of his time at SXSW by bringing his Myspace CRWN interview series with him. This time he invited Lil Wayne to sit on the hot seat to answer questions in front of a live crowd.

Tomorrow (January 17), the 1992 Hip-Hop classic film Juice will be celebrating its 22nd anniversary. In support of the milestone and to capture the film’s impact on the culture, Myspace has released an oral history of the film built from the comments of those who were involved.

It’s been a great year for Problem, who set himself apart from other up and comers with quality singles (“Like Whaaat”) and noteworthy guest appearances. Today, he returns with a full stream of his new Understand Me EP via Myspace.

Odd Future are having a stellar year, and this could continue with the new MellowHigh project. The trio (comprised of Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and Left Brain) are currently streaming their self-titled opus on Myspace for fans’ listening pleasure.

Since signing to TDE, we’ve seen a lot more of Chattanooga, Tenn.’s Isaiah Rashad. And that doesn’t look like it’ll change any time soon, as the young MC was the latest artist to be featured on Myspace‘s ONETWOWATCH series.

Myspace is pulling out all the stops after a complete overhaul of the former social media giant was announced by Justin Timberlake earlier this year. In a new high-energy promo ad aimed at beefing up interest features Pharrell, Mac Miller, Schoolboy Q, RiFF RAFF, Ciara, and plenty of others. 

Justin Timberlake had the Internets abuzz earlier this week after dropping his new single “Suit & Tie”, and he’s wisely, ahem, tied the track in step with the Myspace reboot as well.
