Listen to Cadence Weapon's new self-titled album before its release via our First Play series. It feels like a strange statement for Rollie Pemberton to make but the rapper, who goes by Cadence Weapon, is afraid his music over the years may have convinced people otherwise. Pemberton’s decade-plus career has, in some ways, operated in a solipsistic vacuum — one that has allowed the Edmonton native to experiment and develop his craft over the course of three Polaris Music Prize-nominated albums.
Rollie Pemberton likes to recite famous quotes. He quickly becomes self-conscious of the number of sayings he slings around in our hour-long conversation, but each of them works in the context of the discussion surrounding his work ethic, his outlook on life and his latest self-titled album, his first under his moniker of Cadence Weapon in five years. “Art is never finished, only abandoned,” a well-known Leonardo Da Vinci quote, is just one of the few he rhymes off.
Many celebrities dressed in all black at the 75th Golden Globe Awards to stand in solidarity against gender inequality and sexual harassment in the workplace. The coordinated ‘blackout’ was connected to Time’s Up, a movement formed by over 300 prominent women in the entertainment industry including Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Shonda Rhimes. TIME’S UP was announced on January 1st, 2018 in an open letter published as a full-page ad in The New York Times.
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".
