Getting To Know Tuesday Knight Interview

1. Where did the name Tuesday Knight come from?

So it's definitely not exciting as it sounds. I use to go by my government name Shane Jackson. I always thought it sounded plain and generic. I mean Jackson is the most common name ever. It doesn't sound too rapper-ish I guess. Before I put my first mixtape I needed a rap name that I was going to stick to. And I couldn't think of anything and it happened to be Tuesday night. I was in the studio with my manager and I was explaining what do you think about the name Tuesday Night? There's a bunch of metaphor ways I can play that name. He was like "yo that's kind of dope." So I just kept Tuesday Night. That's when I chose the right name.

2. Can you describe yourself in three words?

Creative, passionate, and humble.

3. What college did you attend and what was your major?

I graduated from Cornell University and I went The School of Hotel Administration. My degree is in Hotel Administration.

4. How long after working did you realize that you wanted to do music instead?

I was working him in Manhattan at Warner Brothers for 3 1/2 years straight out of college, after I graduated, December 31, 2016.

5. How long have you been writing and rapping?

For fun, I would say I started between 13 and 14 years old. But seriously tried to make it a career I would say, about two years ago.

6. Where did your inspiration for the album come from?

My recent album spoke about the transition from corporate to music. So definitely this album was straight pool of inspiration from my real life. I just want to share the thought process behind my decision. If anybody else is going through this and having to make a hard decision in life, just do what makes you happy and what inspires you. It's basically what the album is about.

7. Do you have a special place for your writing?

No, I never really write down my lyrics either. I just constantly think about my lyrics. Everything is in my head so I could be walking and I can see things. Like nature inspired me to [to write]. I can see something while driving my car and say I can make that a dope line. I'm just constantly fighting constantly thinking things that I can say at a later time throughout my career; where people would say that I'm smart because I went to school and be able to leave a memory. I used to remember everything that the teacher said. I never took notes or anything. I can come up with a rap in my head whenever. I don't know I just have a good memory.

8. Do you have an artist that inspires you? Who?

I always go back to Nas, just because that was my introduction to hip-hop. I was born in the early 90s and it was huge. I have two brothers and we was bumping his music. So I was really brought up on listening to Nas. I knew all of his tracks and I was like 5 or 6 years old. That's what inspired me to start especially my style is the way he told stories in his rhymes. Now is definitely the inspiration for me.

9. What's the difference between the corporate industry and the music industry?

The ability to be creative. Which was what was holding me back from falling in love with the corporate industry. You have a boss to tell you what to do and usually there's only one way to do it. I just tell you do it this way. With rap I can be creative, do things the way I want to do them and how I think they should be done.

10. Where do you see yourself in 5 and 10 years?

Five years from now I just want to be making decent amount of money and music so I don't need another job. I'm real humble I don't care about being a millionaire and all that other stuff. If I could make $120 grand off of writing music even ghostwriting for other people. I would be completely content. Ten years from now I will be 36, I hope to take the rent money which is like entry level money and start investing in other things. Have my own businesses and have a family fortune, to include my family and friends and make sure all our bodies are good.

11. What do you want your legacy to be?

I want my legacy to be, that I was a relatable. I was able to make people feel what I was saying. I just want people to be able to relate to my music. And help them get through certain situations in life through my music. That's what I want my legacy to be.

12. Is there anything that your fans should look forward to seeing from you in the near future?

I'm currently working on two separate mixtapes. 2 to 5 track EP’s. There's a day vibe and a night vibe. I've already started working on my next album but who knows how long that's going to take.

You must RSVP, but won’t need to make any donation, on Clinton’s website for a chance for tickets to each concert. It’s not exactly clear how many tickets will be given out to each event. The Mann says you must present an email confirmation voucher to get a wristband to enter the Perry show.

Both Perry and Wonder have been advocates for the Democratic presidential candidate in her race against Republican Donald Trump. Perry performed at the Democratic National Convention this summer and even dressed as Clinton for Halloween.

The campaign says the goal of the concerts is to turn out Clinton voters Tuesday on Election Day. Pennsylvania (with 20 Electoral Votes) is considered a key battleground state on Clinton’s road to 270 Electoral votes.

Lady Gaga’s 2016 Oscar Performance dedicated to Sexual Assault Victims

Lady Gaga 88th Oscar performance was dedicated to sexual assault victims. “Til It Happens To You” is nominated for best Original Song. The singer was introduced by Vice President Biden, who talks about the White House’s campaign “It’s On Us” against sexual assault.

“Too many women and men on and off college campuses are still victims of sexual abuse. Let’s change the culture,” he told the crowd. “We must and we can change the culture so that abused women or men like the ones you will see tonight will never have to ask themselves, ‘What did I do?’ They did nothing wrong.”

The singer opened up about her connection to the track last month.

“I just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported this film. It’s not only an important issue to me, but it’s an important issue to my family,” she said at 27th annual Producers Guild of America Awards on January 23. “Because when my father’s sister was in college, she was sexually assaulted, and then it caused her so much torment that it caused the lupus that she had to get so bad that she died.”

“My father was 16 and it affected my family really tremendously my whole life,” she added. “So this song means so much to me and so much to my parents.”

This is the second consecutive year that Gaga has graced the Oscars with her talent. At the 2015 ceremony, she stunned the audience with a jaw-dropping tribute to The Sound of Music.

Safaree Talks About Break-Up With Nicki Minaj In Breakfast Club Interview

Today Safaree did an interview with The Breakfast Club. The interview was supposed to be promoting his music and upcoming EP, but the majority of it circulated around his recent break up with rapper Nicki Minaj. I have to say I was a little upset that Safaree would put music out at this point in time. I just felt as though its bad timing but after listening to the interview, I understand where he is coming from. To be honest I didn’t know much about Safaree nor did I do much research on Nicki and his relationship, but I knew they were obviously together. So hearing that he came out with music seemed like a publicity stunt. Now I can see that it is honestly more than that. Anyone that sees the interview will know that this guy is still hurting and is trying to deal with not have his woman. Being with someone for fifteen years is a long ass time. Like Nicki said in her interview with Angie Martinez, thats the timing people get married and have kids. So making music is a way for him to begin to move on. Even if people feel as though that isn’t the best option for him, he feels as though its right so he should do it. I honestly say Safaree seems like a good man that is just trying to find himself out of his relationship, which is understandble. Once all this is over I do hope that Safaree and Nicki Minaj remain friends because they built their life together, though they grew apart, that shouldn’t get in the way of their friendship. I wish Safaree and Nicki Minaj the best.
