The arrival of summer has brought a flurry of activity and anticipation regarding Memphis rapper Yo Gotti – including news of a surprise mix tape, a new tour, and the first guest confirmations for his annual birthday bash concert in Memphis. Last week, somewhat unexpectedly, Gotti dropped a new album. The project is a mix tape collaboration between the rapper and Atlanta producer Mike WiLL Made-It.
When the Replacements got together for a long-wished-for reunion in 2013, I wrote: "The Replacements are the band that saved my life. Their songs were messy and sentimental and they came around when I was scuffling along in my life in the '80s. As I listen to them decades later, I still feel like Paul Westerberg is wearing my heart on his flannel sleeve.
Attorney, activist, artist manager, founder of the Beale Street Music Festival, charmer, bon vivant — all these descriptions applied equally and accurately to Irvin Salky. But above all he was that rare kind of Memphian — a man who traversed many different worlds and was welcome in them all. “I don’t think there’s a person in Memphis that crossed racial, cultural, religious and economic lines as freely as Irvin Salky,” said his longtime friend and protégé, U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
