In "Go Awf!" Prince Airick is the king of the ball. Teaming up with Kevin JZ Prodigy, the DMV artist's latest visual shows him seated in an elaborate throne and represents his "dream world," where voguing and bright costumes are spotlighted as a means of self-expression. In an email to The FADER, Prince Airick explained the phrase's background: "When you're performing well, you're "going awf,'" he said. "When your outfit is stylish, you're 'going awf.'
In April, we got a chance to learn about BJ The Chicago Kid's Windy City roots and see Buscabulla's newfound digs in Brooklyn. In this new video produced by The FADER for Toyota, the two artists meet way outside the middle and set out to explore the beautiful city of Los Angeles together. "This is where things happen, this is where things can occur, if you're an artist or a creative person," says Buscabulla's Luis Alfredo Del Valle.
On 2016's Ninety, emerging Philly rapper Chynna (a.k.a. Chynna Rogers) introduced us to a "dark but still amazingly spiritual" side of herself. Today, the 22-year-old artist confronts some inner demons in "Seasonal Depression," an ethereal track produced by Suicideyear. "It's about when someone brings out the best and worst in you," Chynna told The FADER over email. "Also, I've always wanted to be in an emo band." Her forthcoming, unnamed project is due this summer. Listen to the first single below.
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".
