At the end of 2010, Taiwo and Kehinde moved to L.A. with hopes of extending their brand and building relationships with younger artists. Across the country, they found their initial calling card was still their Pharrell connection. "People would try to work with us to try to get to Pharrell, but then by the time they would sit with us, we would give them a banger, and they would forget that's why they met us." Taiwo implied that's what happened with singer/songwriter John West.
Last year's "Run It Up" was one of Jose Guapo's biggest hits. The record featured Takeoff of Migos and YFN Lucci as well as a blissful trap production from Spiffy Global. Ahead of Guapo's upcoming tape Extravagant Trench Shit, the young QC signee has dropped off a new "Run It Up" remix, on which he has replaced the ATL rappers on the original with Shy Glizzy and Boosie Badazz. Combining a lightweight melody with extra snappy drums, Spiffy makes the perfect backdrop for Guapo's style of trap.
"We had chemistry right off the bat. We'd go and bang out records -- 20 minutes, know what I mean," said Murda of his first experiences in the Quality Control studio. "It's the same thing now. We did 'Pipe It Up' -- bang it out, 20 minutes. I could bang out a beat on the spot in 20 minutes, and then they could do the song in 20 minutes." "Pipe It Up," one of three tracks he landed on Migos' debut album, Yung Rich Nation, is Murda's biggest track yet.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
