Soulja Boy, Elijah Blake, A$AP TyTy, and numerous others have teamed up with LimeWire for a unique metaverse concert.

Dubbed the Metaverse Music Festival in Decentraland, the LimeWire stage hosted a slew of big artists this past week that included Big Draco, Blake, TyTy, Quincy, EscapePlan, Lil Bitcoin.

Seventeen artists took to the stage over the course of four days, and LimeWire also provided digital merch for attendees, including digital sneakers and glasses.

The festival’s main stage also hosted a swanky VIP area for those in possession of the LimeWire original NFT’s, which Soulja Boy helped the company launch in July.

LimeWire announced its plans to relaunch as a music-oriented NFT (non-fungible token) marketplace earlier in 2022, which would allow users to “explore, collect and trade unique digital collectibles.” Soulja Boy supported the company’s return by reposting their latest commercial on social media.

The 60-second clip was entirely soundtracked by Draco’s 2007 seminal hit “Crank That (Soulja Boy),” which was one of the platform’s most widely downloaded songs before the Recording Industry Association of America shuttered it following a lawsuit in 2010.

A federal New York court had ruled after a four-year-long legal battle that the website intentionally caused a “massive scale of infringement” by allowing the sharing of thousands of copyrighted works by its 50 million monthly users.

In March 2022, Austrian entrepreneurs and brothers Julian and Paul Zehetmayr acquired LimeWire’s naming rights to relaunch the platform as a “mainstream-ready, digital collectibles marketplace for art and entertainment, initially focusing on music.”

While Soulja has shown full-blown support for LimeWire’s revival, it seems his support for Twitter is waning following Elon Musk’s takeover of the company in October. Draco took to Twitter last week to air out the new CEO, and said he plans to start his own social media app as a result.

“Now u can just pay to be verified? Twitter has been destroyed,” Soulja Boy said. “Bro leave twitter alone @elonmusk wtf are you doing.”

He continued: “Wow… I can’t believe this. Fuck it I’m going to create my own app. Bye twitter [Peace sign finger emoji] catch me on instagram until my app launches.”
