So long as they exist, images of the late, great Tupac Shakur will always be worthwhile additions to posters, coffee mugs, hoodies and T-shirts. That’s all well and good—just as long as you secure the permission to do so. According to legendary photographer Chi Modu, that’s something Macy’s and Urban Outfitters failed to do when they used Tupac photos he shot over two decades ago for some of their new merchandise.
After dropping a mixture of upbeat bangers and sentimental reflections for singles, Macklemore returns with Gemini, his first solo album since 2005’s The Language of My World. This time around, the Washington-based rapper’s without his pal Ryan Lewis, but his newest album is still filled with all the versatility that made his previous projects bump. The project’s first single, the Skylar Grey-assisted “Glorious,” is a triumphant celebration of life.
Throughout his storied career, JAY-Z has used succinct spurts of potent lyricism to render complex societal phenomena into readily digestible bits of information. On one level or another, every Hov album from Reasonable Doubt to 4:44 has been emblematic of the time they were released, and it looks like his follow-up to 4:44 will follow that pattern. Hov hints at as much in a new interview with BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo.
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".
