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.

NEW VIDEO: KEKE PALMER – I DON’T BELONG TO YOU

                   

Keke Palmer’s new video “I don’t belong to you” is straight fire. 

 
Keke Palmer does a wonderful job with petraying a woman that knows what she wants. In the beginning of the video, Palmer wakes up with singer/actor Rotimi . She quickly gets up, and begins to put her clothes on when Rotimi discovers that she’s about to leave he tried to stop her. That’s when she goes into telling him that she already explained how the situation would pan out. Yet he still looks confused and hurt. When she leaves her car picks her up and take her to her house. When you get to the house, she takes a shower and gets herself dolled up. That’s when her car comes and picks her up again and takes her to another location. 


When she gets to the other location and knocks on the door, singer Cassie opens the door standing there a T-shirt and underwear. Its plainly obvious that they want each other and Keke follows Cassie into the house.

When I first saw this video I was so confused. I had to go back and watch it two more times to get a proper conclusion. So what I got from it was that Keke played a character that has no interest in settling down, at the moment. She has her fun but she explains to the people involved that she has no interest in settling down, but they still don’t understand. Hints to the title I don’t belong to you and her repeating keep it on the down low.

Reading the comments under the video, it seems that some women want men to look at this video to see what it feels like.

OnPointVideo!!! Love it!!!

                         

NEW VIDEO: Rihanna ft. Drake – Work

Rihanna hasn’t only released one but two fiery hot visual for “work”. The video displays the Caribbean beauty attending a steamy dancehall party. For those of you who have never seen what happens during a dancehall party, this video displayed the perfect visuals for you to get an idea of what you’ve been missing. The Barbadian singer of course showed off a couple of her moves, which left fans drooling.

The second video displays Rihanna dancing for Drake. The best part of both videos is Drake’s facial expressions every time Rihanna wines up on him. Love it!

In other news for those who haven’t heard yet, “Work” earned the #1 spot this week on the Hot 100 reports. This is now Rihanna 14th #1 single on the billboard charts. This is wonderful especially when, Michael Jackson, The King of Pop, had 13 #1 singles. Ms. Fenty got the world going crazy.

NEW VIDEO: Beyonce – Formation

Beyoncé has done it again! Queen B shut all the haters up in one 5 minute video. What I got from the video is that she is unapologetic. She is proud of who she is and where she came from. She is also proud to let everyone one that she loves her husband and her beautiful daughter no matter what haters have to say. I feel as if there is a reference to Travon Martin and being anti-cops. What I love most is the emphasis on black power. Queen B never fails to amaze me. Love it! OnPoint!

NEW LYRIC VIDEO: VINCENT ROSS – Love Yuh

 

0cb41d2294bff6188306cb5e84c0ef8b

Vincent Ross from the YaadBwoys released a new track called “Love Yuh”. The song is about him expressing his feelings for a women he likes. Letting her know, he wants her to be his one and only. The visual shows Vincent spending time with his special woman.

At the end of the video, the last words on the screen are “To Be Continued”. I hope that means we will be getting an official video. That would be OnPoint not to mention how good Pryce Vince would look. lol

Check out the Lyric video below:

 

TEASER: Nicki Minaj ft. Beyonce – Feeling Myself

Yesterday the “Feeling Myself” video with Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé was released was released on Tidal, which hasn’t had the best attention but after this they will be getting a lot more subscribers. Now of course they are pull the video from every YouTube account before they can finish uploading.

However the video consisted of Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé prancing around in one pieces and jerseys. They seem to be enjoying the scenery while expressing how great they feel about themselves. Some online bloggers have also connected Nicki’s jersey to Tyga and Kylie relationship. Nicki and Tyga has had bad blood for a while now after Tyga was pissed because he had work with Nicki and Drake because they were on the same label. The jersey reads “Pervert 17” which could be throwing shots a Tyga for dating Kylie who is 17 years old. The couture jersey retails at $1,700. Throwing jabs in style there’s no other way to do it.

Going back to the main topic. Attached is a 30 second video watch and tell me what you observe. Enjoy!
