When I finally talked to Mozzy, he almost didn’t believe I was the person I said I was. I explained to him that we grew up together, two houses down from one another. The details made sense, but skepticism still buzzed in the Oak Park rapper’s voice. Finally, he settled on a tidbit that fully convinced him. “Eddie?” he said, still incredulous. “In the pink house, with the crate attached to the garage? Like a basketball hoop?”That was all it took.
In some respects, rap is built on divides. 2 Pac vs. Biggie. East Vs. West. Jay Z Vs. Nas. A Tribe Called Quest Vs. De La Soul. Old School Vs. New School. Kendrick Vs. Drake. It’s these differences in opinion that fuel barber shop debates and online screaming matches that help shape the culture of the genre and create the air of competitiveness that seems to hover over every single song, interview, album, concert and video. Rap is competitive, and these divides are what make it so.
Vic Mensa just wrapped up a tour with Jay-Z, and released one of the best rap albums of 2017, but he’s clearly not resting on his laurels and basking in last year’s successes. The Chicago MC has gotten right back to work and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.
There’s so many variables it’s hard to just pencil anybody in for automatic titles. Especially in today’s nba with so much movement. Time will tell with them. But health will be the biggest factor because they’ve shown they’ll sacrifice money for the team https://twitter.com/ai002h/status/974838503438782464
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".
