Supremely talented and versatile as a stretch-four who can handle the rock, Bigg Z is finally dropping his aptly titled LP The Wait is Over and the project is flame emojis ad infinitum. In addition to the album drop, Z is promoting "Dark Days," his frenetic, high-powered single with none other than KXNG Crooked of Slaughterhouse. The track is one of many highlights on The Wait is Over, and underscores Z's ability to murk the M-I-C sans faux machismo or shouting out designer brands.
When I peeped the cover art for TUNA, the new mafioso EP from Rochester, NY emcee Pounds, I had to pop my buds on ASAP and see what this guy had to say. His arm resting on a small private aircraft, the imposing rapper — garbed in a black jacket, black kicks, black beanie and standing next to a, yes, black dufflebag — doesn't look like your typical diva rapper who cashes out his Papa John's check to flash some 20s on Instagram. This dude's the real article.
King Rosè, the talented DMV spitter who recently blessed us with his summer single "Dear June," has returned to drop "Dialtone," a soulful slap off of his upcoming Villa No. 9 project. The track features some pristine vocals from April George of April + VISTA and originalvision on the ones and twos. Per usual, Rosè comes correct like a spellcheck and makes this one an all-around good call.
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".
