In November, rapper Kash Doll took to social media to express her frustration with some of the other artists using the moniker "doll." Kash emerged on the rap scene in 2014, before the other women she was referring to, and therefore claims the position of the veteran doll among the four similarly named MCs — Asian Doll, Dream Doll, and Cuban Doll. After she sounded off her feelings about the use of the word, minor tiffs ignited between Kash and Asian Doll and DreamDoll.
Singer/songwriter NSTASIA praises a divine love in her new video for "New Religion." The visual focuses on NSTASIA as she sings about her devoted partnership before chromatic backdrops. The song's instrumentation is minimal, and so her voice stretches. The verses are concise and clear, while the pre-chorus enlivens the vibe as she plays with her flow and cadences. "New Religion is about a new love," NSTASIA said over email.
Charismatic Chicago rapper Dreezy has no qualms about showing love to her icons. When she recently stopped by The FADER's offices, she shared how she identifies with a few of her favorite women who rap and how they've influenced her as an artist. Dreezy points out the way Eve was able to portray her duality by showing her emotional side with love-focused hits while still being edgy with her infamous leather skirts and paw print tattoos.
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".
