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: 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: Teyana Taylor – Do Not Disturb

Teyana Taylor Do Not Disturb

Teyana Taylor releases another Tuesday teaser from her track “Do Not Disturb which will be debut on her album VII .

In the video Teyana plays a sexy bellhop that makes a stop at her mans room to fantasy about her. She is shown rolling around in his bed, smelling his cloths and going through his luggage. I said her man but there could be a possibility that she just wants this man. Idk we will have to wait and see.

NEW MUSIC: Kendrick Lamar – I

Kendrick Lamar’s new single ‘I’ is off his upcoming album, Prince Paul’s Boutique 2000 according to reports. Kendrick hasn’t came out with any new music since 2013 when ‘B***h Don’t Kill My Vibe’ came out. His album is one of the most highly anticipated album of this year. Can’t wait!

The song is very positive. I absolutely love the concept and the message he is trying to get across. OnPointCeleb!

Lyrics from the track include:

And I love myself!

The world is a ghetto with guns and picket signs.

I love myself!

But it can do what it want whenever it wants and I don’t mind.

I love myself!

He said I gotta get up, life is more than suicide.

NEW MUSIC: Jazmine Sullivan – Forever Don’t Last

Jazmine Sullivan has surprised us again with another new track called ‘Forever Don’t Last’. Ms. Sullivan sings about a relationship she felt work last forever but because of the way people think these days, that’s not possible. She says at one point in the song that she tried but she had to understand that its just not going to work. 

First I want to say I love that fact that Ms. Sullivan is gracing us with her beautiful voice. As for the concept of the song, I agree with the fact that our society makes it impossible, to a certain extent, for people to want to make a relationship work. It is displayed everywhere that if your relationship doesn’t work don’t waste time and move on. So people never really try to see if the relationship is worth fighting for because they can find something better. Granted sometimes a relationship isn’t worth your time but you won’t know unless you try. I will say though the only time you should just drop it is if the person you are with isn’t trying also. There are times in relationship when you both LOVE one another but the relationship is just stuck but that is when you know you should work on it. You both know somethings wrong and you both notice it and want to fix it but for any of this to happen our mentalities and view on what a relationship is must change.
