I heard that you were not expecting the call from Gucci when it came. It was a random ass call. I had just moved into my new condo in Atlanta. The cable man was coming to hook up my cable, and he told me he needed to be there at 8 o’clock in the morning. Gucci called me at like 8 in the morning, 7:30 maybe. I know, Gucci up early! Gucci up early every day. So he hit me like, “ZMoney? This ZMoney?” I’m like, “Who’s this?” “It’s Gucci!” I’m like, “Who?” “Gucci Mane, nigga!” I’m like, Ohhh shit!
For as long as non-Chicagoans have been listening to footwork, the form has been presented as something of an outsider art. Early reviews, circa Planet Mu’s Bangs & Works comps, threw around descriptors like “alien.” There’s certainly a learning curve when it comes to acclimating to the intensity of the sound, with its reckless polyrhythms and chaotic sampling techniques.
Calling your album Culture is a move so ballsy it feels like trolling if you can’t back it up. And last year, the Migos did: Culture was the resilient Atlanta trio’s best album, but it also felt like a moment, arriving right at the crest of a monster wave of hard-fought acclaim. A lot of that had to do with “Bad and Boujee,” the group’s first No. 1 single, but what made Culture exceptional was more than just chart positioning.
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".
