Pulliam Jr. was a celebrity hairstylist known for his appearances on BETâ€™s â€œKeyshia Cole â€“ The Way it is,â€ â€œTears Shears and Beauty,â€ and the â€œFrankie n Neffe show.â€

Tank recently had the opportunity to perform on the Wendy Williams show. There he revealed that he was under new management which explains all the positive and productive press he has been receiving since the release of his latest album entitled “Now or Never”. His new manager happens to be Manny, former manager of the hit making song-tress Keyshia Cole.
While on the Wendy Williams Show, I observed a fresh and revitalizing energy from Tank, I could imagine that being so, having the right people in your corner and who solely have your best interest at heart, is a major key to the success in the music industry especially while the industry is so fragile right now.
