    so what do you think would happen if mp3.com came back but without the "pay for play" attribute. You think Mp3.com would reclaim its old members, or would soundclick retain its current members?..

    I honestly think mp3.com would take over little by little and recompensate it's members.. I remember having a soundclick.com site even while I hard mp3.com.. it was just for shits and giggles tho, nothing serious..

    Shit like MP3.com will never come back. The business model of "you pay us nothing and we'll give you thousands of dollars in return" can't be sustained for too long. Especially when MP3.com had as many artists as they did. But yeah, I remember the first time I saw a layout where the artist image was actually a part of the overall page. That shit was always fly. Its really too bad that soundclick isn't nasty like that. They basically copied everything else in their layout from MP3.com but that.



    I don't remember that many cats, but the ones that stand out where:
    Nashid
    DJ JB... who I thought was by far the best cat at making beats. His synths were always crazy but they had a real old school vintage sound to them.
    Sol... he used to post as Lil C and had these super melodic Moesha type beats, but then he changed his name and almost over night dropped that shit and started doing heat rocks.
    Kaysha... if I remember right, he's probally the cat that started off with having ass shots as your song image or artist image. His music always had a really big feel to it. Sometimes it wouldn't quite be rap or r&b, but it was like some shit you'd hear in a expensive car commercial. That shit was always cool to me.
    Stylaz & Noviss... both of them where pretty tight with that Premo type stuff.
    Ray Digga... Man, ray digga used to have the nastiest club beats ever made. You wouldn't guess it now cuz all his does is weird super abstract "adult swim" type beats now, but he used to be super-duper nasty with club shit.

    Not doubting what you are saying, but I was a member of mp3.com under LISN back in mid 2001 .. Actually you know what, I think you are right.. I just got a memory flash getting my first $83.00 check from mp3.com...

    yea cnet bought it...

    But they were in major debt and they were getting sued by the RIAA because they was (at first) allowing downloading copyright music (I think they lost).

    http://www.wired.com/news/business/0,1367,35933,00.html

    So they were going out of business and cnet bought bailed them out, but at the time bandwidth cost 10x what it cost now.

    Not at first. Trust me, I was a member and was getting quarterly checks without paying them anything. Around like 99 or 2000 they switched business models and started up with that thing where you had free members and premium members. At premium you could get paid for plays, but it was like $20 a month.

    But even then, the business model of "you give me $20, i'll give you $1000" didn't last very long.
