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.

Rihanna’s NEW ALBUM ‘ANTI’

rihanna-work-preview

1. “Consideration” (ft. SZA)

A confident drum kit starts off Rihanna’s return: “I got to do things my own way darlin’ / Will you ever let me / Will you ever respect me?” Dang. Tell us how you really feel, Rih! SZA joins in with a mesmerizing hook, proving that Rihanna has bars and good taste. This song is a solid banger, starting the album out strong a sending a clear message: this one is all mine.

2. “James Joint”

On a dreamier note, “James Joint” comes in to remind us of Rihanna’s one true love, self-explanatory title and all. It’s a nice interlude and an in-your-face reminder that Rih doesn’t care what you think.

3. “Kiss it Better”

Here, Rihanna brings in a guitar riff on a romantic pop anthem. “Kiss It Better” does what Rihanna does best: demand loving just the way she wants it. “Here to take me back / who cares when it feels like…” she sings, lamenting the “are we together or not” drama so many of us experience on the regular. This song could easily blast out of a boombox, raised over a heartthrob’s head in the climactic scene of a teen drama. Alternatively, it will blast out of our laptops for the next month.

4. “Work” (ft. Drake)

In the most dancehall-inspired track on the album, Drake joins Rihanna to put in “Work.” It’s upbeat, forcing you to dance whether you’re in your seat or on your feet, but features some pretty trying lyrics. Who hasn’t needed to put in work to make their relationship last?

5. “Desperado”

This one is rhythmic, dark, and dramatic. We’re here for Rihanna’s bad gal cowboy phase.

6. “Woo”

The falsetto “woo” chorus on this song is its namesake, but the beat and Rihanna’s haunting lyrics set it off: “I bet she could never make you cry / cause the scars on your heart are still mine.” Buckle up, kids. We’ve got a breakup anthem.

7. “Needed Me”

Building off the previous track, this one follows strong, insisting “you needed me” over a strong bass as she insists, “didn’t I tell you I was a savage?” It’s got Weeknd vibes with a signature Rihanna attitude.

8. “Yeah, I Said It”

There can’t be a Rihanna album without a come-hither song, but this one is a slow jam, which is unusual for her. As is the trend with this album, she owns it. Here, she drives home sultry vocals over a similarly sexy piano-driven beat.

9. “Same Ol’ Mistakes”

On this six-minute Tame Impala cover, Ri shows off her pipes. It’s not only a good cover, but also a standout song on the album. With her voice controlling the track, it’s both trippy and introspective. Remember, y’all: she’s not just pop.

10. “Never Ending”

The Dido influence is strong here, with this sad folk song allowing Rihanna to explore an angle we’ve never seen her take. “And I can’t feel my body now. . .It’s pulling me apart this time / it’s never-ending,” she sings, lamenting what it’s like to feel love again without being able to feel it at all. It’s heavy, but the tune is light and listenable.

11. “Love on the Brain”

This track is all #TBT, giving you as much heart-wrenching falsetto and doo-wop as you can handle. “Must be love on the brain / that’s got me feeling this way,” she sings, echoing the heartbroken lyrics of “Stay” with all the catchy rhythm of a ’50s radio track, backup singers and all.

12. “Higher”

At Rihanna’s most Amy Winehouse moment, she sings about whiskey and ashtrays, letting you hear the wear-and-tear on her voice for a brief two minutes. This one is a must-listen, as it feels like an Adele deep cut with Rih’s trademark bad girl edge. It’s both sad and hopeful, triumphant and defeated. Strings add to the drama, giving you the emotion that’s usually only reserved for Rihanna’s social media. Most of all, it’s honest, it’s refreshing, and it’s a win on an album that feels all her own.

13. “Close To You”

The album’s closing track is the closest comparison to “Stay,” but it’s also wholly original for Rihanna. It’s soft, sweet, and stripped, lilting out with her words, “if you let me, I’ll be there by now / close to you.” No hard beat, nothing overpowering. Just Rihanna singing what she wants

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!
