On his major label debut The Slim Shady LP, Eminem tells a story about taking his infant daughter along for a ride to dump her murdered mother's in the lake. "My album isn't for younger kids to hear," he explained in a 1999 Rolling Stone interview. "It has an advisory sticker, and you must be eighteen to get it. That doesn't mean younger kids won't get it, but I'm not responsible for every kid out there. I'm not a role model, and I don't claim to be."
XXL is in the process of rolling out their 2016 freshman freestyles. Yesterday we had Desiignercoming heavy with the finger snaps. Today we have Lil Dicky. Dicky has taken plenty of heat from critics who assert that he trivializes the art form with his comedic approach. But it's hard to deny that the man can spit, and here he attempts to break the record for words recited in a freshman freestyle. "Total package like my flaccid is growing." Watch Dicky's freestyle above and his interview below.
Three summers ago, HNHH asked hip hop tastemaker and park party maestro 40 Oz Van to put together a playlist of 21 SoundCloud tracks. The playlist heavily pulled from Awful Records, what would coalesce into Divine Council, and artists from south Florida and Atlanta. 40 Oz was particularly clairvoyant in his selection of Atlanta rappers: at the time, Playboi Carti and 21 Savage had achieved moderate SoundCloud success and generated zero national buzz.
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".
