Q-Tip and Consequence seem to truly be on the mend. Just a few weeks back the brothers in rhyme, cousins in real-life, joined forces on Cons’ “No Matter What” off his return project, the aptly-titled, A Good Comeback Story. Now, with the album officially out and about in the world and getting the burn it deserves, Con appears to have dug up a finished version of a very special Q-Tip production to drop some dimes over.
It’s a strange thing to ponder something like D’Angelo‘s Brown Sugar in terms of its influence–musical or cultural–over the 20 years since initial release on July 3rd, 1995. Perhaps especially for me, as a 27-year-old white dude from the outskirts of Baltimore. I was 7 years old and if one were to ask me at that age what an important record was or meant, I would have no basis or reference point to properly place it.
Lenny Kravitz has been talking up a storm about us upcoming Strut LP, but today he’s giving us our first taste with the sultry lead-off single “Sex.” The initial offering form the album is a bit of a throwback (even for Kravitz) taking the grungy funk of Living Colour‘s work and even some late-’80s Prince cuts to the masses, boasting big, but simple drums and a raw filtered guitar track, that give a whole new meaning to “stripped-down.” Kravitz’s three-years-in-the-making Strut LP has finally...
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".
