Los Angeles, CA – The production of Mike & Keys is best served with a glass of Hennessy, on ice. It’s soulful and timeless. With a combined influence of Louisiana panache from Mike and Bay Area swag from Keys, the duo formally known as The Futuristiks has been making waves in the music industry for over a decade. After linking with Nipsey Hussle for the making of Crenshaw, they’ve continued that trek into Nip’s highly anticipated album Victory Lap, which is slated for release on February 16.
HipHopDX – This week in Hip Hop, Joe Budden was possibly dissed by Eminem on the remix to “Chloraseptic,” and 50 Cent and D12’s Bizarre continued the dragging on social media. Also, Kevin Gates was released from prison on Wednesday (January 10) and H&M got dropped by The Weeknd and G-Eazy for greenlighting a racist ad. Eminem blasted critics with a remix to his Revival track “Chloraseptic.” It also sounded like Em took shots at Joe Budden over his criticism as well.
Bruno Mars’ “Finesse (Remix)” featuring Cardi B has debuted at #5 on the R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales charts for the week ending January 4, while Kendrick Lamar’s Teddy Walton-produced single “LOVE.” featuring Zacari now sits at #2. Meanwhile, Post Malone continues to maintain his #1 position with “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage. His Stoney single “Congratulations” just hit over a million in digital sales as well.
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".
