As some of you may know, 4thQu opened for Kat Dahlia's Baltimore tour stop last Sunday... This is his first live performance. In an attempt to keep his identity somewhat of a secret the lighting is very low, no technical difficulty there... Enjoy...

Nas, for the most part, stayed true to himself. Sure, there was the whole Nastradamus fiasco, but everyone's allowed a misstep. Instead of borrowing flows, he refined the one he came in with. His flow is held in such high regard that newer rappers bragged about approximating it. Remember the opening to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? There's a new NYC rapper who, though nice with the pen, is getting massive shine because people thought he was Nas. And at a time when older rappers are trying to figure out a way to gracefully age while staying hip to the new shit, Nas, as displayed on Life Is Good, is comfortable doing what feels comfortable to him. There's no Drake hook. No Hit-Boy beat. No European fashion on the cover. Just Nas. In 2014, that sounds like a win.

With 14.7 million pixels — and more power than ever — inside the same amazingly thin design, the new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is a sight to behold. And with OS X Yosemite, you won’t just see more. You’ll do more.
iMac has always been about having a huge, immersive place to see and create amazing things. So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The new 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale.
At such a scale, even the best existing technologies wouldn’t have made this iMac possible. So we did the impossible — developing a display with the performance to light up 14.7 million pixels, reducing energy consumption while maintaining our high standard for brightness, and advancing image quality for the most striking contrast ever.
And we did it all without compromising the incredibly thin design, just 5 mm at its edge.

9 out of 10 women reading this are dishonest. I’m not talking about telling lies or stealing, I mean dishonest in terms that they can’t even admit to themselves who they are and what they want for fear of being looked down upon. I once asked a girl who was going through drama with her boo what she wanted from him, a relationship or a friendship? Her response was that she didn’t have time for any of that because she was going to school and had to figure out her next move after graduation. I didn’t ask her shit about school or work goals, I asked her straight up what she wanted from the guy she was spending her nights stressing over. Her pride wouldn’t allow her to be honest enough to say, “Yes, I like him and I would like to be with him, but I’m afraid he doesn’t want the same– help.” She gave me a bullshit answer that wouldn’t make her seem weak, soft, or thirsty. The more Insecure the woman, the harder she tries to hide her insecurity behind attitude and excuses. No one can help you if you’re too prideful to admit what you want and that you’re afraid you won’t get it.
In order to safeguard their feelings, some women drape a cloak of “I’m good” over themselves and pretend that they don’t care about anything. I don’t want him to spend time with me, I’m busy anyway—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want him to put me first, I’m not trying to be his girl anyway—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want other people to like me, I’m a lone wolf—Bitch Stop Lying. I don’t want him to ask me to be official, I’m not looking for anything serious anyway—Bitch Stop Lying! To even bring up, “I’m not even worried about him,” is an admission of being worried about him, or else you wouldn’t have brought him up! I’m going to let you in on a secret, men don’t believe you, that’s why they call your bluff, toy with your emotions, and act as if they don’t care—your apathy is transparent. Sad, lonely, and angry women make bad relationship choices because their actions don’t match the words coming out of their mouths. Players eat passive and defensive women for breakfast, because their buttons are out in the open and easy to push.
When a person thinks they will fail at something or be rejected, they become passive and act if they weren’t trying in the first place. This way if they don’t get the results they really want, it won’t seem like they failed. Read that again and understand it because I bet you do that shit. Single and happy, focusing on me, raising my child, waiting on Jesus to return, blah blah blah. That’s all bullshit. You can front like you’re not on the racetrack, but we know that you’re still secretly in the race hoping to get chose! How do I know that’s true? When a seemingly perfect man slides you his number, you don’t delete it, you get excited, all of those excuses go out the window, and all you can think of is, “Please God let this one be The One.” YOU. ARE. NOT. HONEST. The only thing that will save you from being played is to be honest about your shortcomings.
If you aren’t real enough to say, “The reason I want to call this man and yell at him for not calling me all week, isn’t because I love him, but because I have a weakness for attention and affection because my father never gave me that,” then you will confuse love of attention with love of that person. Those women that are able to self-diagnose themselves don’t have anxiety, they don’t cry, they don’t snap, they don’t blow up a dude’s phone, and they don’t ask every one of their friends their opinion on “What do you think he means by this text.” To be honest about your flaws is to be free of male manipulation, because men can’t pull your strings if you’ve already cut those motherfuckers. Today I’m going to talk about why women can’t handle Dick. No, Ratchet Raccoon, I’m not talking about how you take the penis of a nigga that barely likes you, I’m talking about how to handle users. Men know when women are fronting, they know the secret war going on inside your head when they don’t give you what you want, and they use that insecurity to their advantage because you aren’t honest enough to plug those holes and rebuke male mind games. So, if you’re ready to be honest to the point that it hurts, let’s talk about Dick.

Some people are really, really disappointed that Blue Ivy looks Black.
The people who wanted Blue Ivy to be their racially ambiguous dream-child have found themselves in the midst of a rude awakening. It appears that they forgot, or perhaps never cared to realize, that Blue Ivy is the child of two Black parents, and that their hopes and dreams of her being the beige child they could obsess over, and project their anti-Blackness onto, have been deferred. For as Blue Ivy grows and develops into the beautiful child that she is, her features have not stayed in the realm of Whiteness that so many of us are comfortable with when it comes to finding Black to be beautiful. Her hair is not the wavy texture that they hoped for. Her nose is not the thin one they hoped for. Her skin is not the beige, off-white, lemon color that they hoped for. Blue Ivy is a Black child with full lips, hair that grows defiantly towards the sky, and skin that is much more chocolate than vanilla.
And this has many people furious.
Perhaps it was inevitable.
Beyonce, for all her strengths and weaknesses, has not always presented an aesthetically Black image to the public. Her light skin and preference for straight blonde hair has, all too often, allowed her to appear as racially ambiguous in the public imagination. She could easily “pass” for a number of races, and no one would probably know the difference, and I think this is playing a part in the way Blue Ivy, her beautiful Black child, is being perceived. It’s as if people expect Blue Ivy to look like a biracial child despite having two Black parents. Some of those who are most frustrated and disappointed with Blue Ivy’s apparent Blackness are fans of Beyonce. It is entirely possible that they latched on to the singer due to her racially ambiguous features that allowed them to project their anti-Blackness onto her. This, however, has not been the case with Blue Ivy. They have grown frustrated with the fact that Blue Ivy’s hair is “not done,” they have lamented that she looks “too much like her dad,” and they have even stated their disappointment in how dark she is. People wanted Blue Ivy to serve as the recipient of their anti-Black desires and she has not turned out to be that for them.
It’s impossible to have a discussion about Blue Ivy being used as a projection of our anti-Blackness without mentioning North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. So far, North West has “passed” the test. Her hair is wavy enough, her skin is beige enough, and her features are palatable enough to those who are looking for a racially ambiguous dream-child to be recipient of their anti-Black projections. North West, unlike Blue Ivy, is an “appropriate” Black child, at least when it comes to the kind of children we prefer to fawn over in the media. Those commenting on the two children have praised Kim for refining North West’s Blackness by “laying” her hair down, but have decried Beyonce for refusing to “tame” or “do” Blue Ivy’s hair. The implication here being that our hair is something that needs to be controlled rather than being allowed to do its own thing, in its natural state. People have couched their anti-Blackness under “her hair needs to be done,” but anyone paying even a little attention should know what that is code for.
In a lot of ways, I feel like I am one of the few Black people who is not obsessed with beige children. I refuse to revel in the anti-Blackness that privileges lighter skin children with features more closely relating to Whites, or Asians or Native Americans. To quote the great intellectual bell hooks, “I am happy to be nappy,” and I love me some dark chocolate skin. I love all of the beautiful colors we come in, as human beings, from albino to pitch black, but I have to be on guard for the privileging of light skin and the anti-Blackness that has us believe that Black looks better when it is more closely related in skin color to White.
Toni Morrison once said that the most vulnerable person in any society is a Black girl child, and that is apparent with the endless criticism of Blue Ivy. It would be one thing if she were a little boy. She would be allowed to not be “pretty” or “beautiful” in a conventional since, but as a girl she not only has to be the right “color,” with the right features, she also has to be “cute.” Given that her mother is Beyonce, someone who is praised for her beauty and idealized for her racially ambiguity, I expect these criticisms of Blue Ivy to continue as she grows and develops.
In a white supremacist like ours, people are always looking for a place to project and display their anti-Blackness. Some people cannot seem to accept that Blue Ivy, at least, is not going to be the person they can do it on.

Apple's love affair with gold is about to extend to the iPad, as the company is planning to introduce the color as a new option in an effort to boost lagging tablet sales.
Gold-colored backings for 9.7-inch iPads are set to be released sometime in October, according to Bloomberg. A gold iPad would join other products that have sported the metal (or at least the color), including the iPhone 5S and the new Apple Watch, which will be available in actual 18-karat gold.
For an idea of what a gold iPad might look like, Stuart Hughes, a luxury gadget designer, made a solid gold and diamond-encrusted iPad back in 2010.
Apple has struggled to sustain iPad sales, which have fallen in recent quarters, and declined in year-over-year comparisons. Analysts such as Gartner are projecting the global tablet market to continue to grow, albeit at a slower pace.

LeBron James teams up with the Looney Tunes and other cartoons.
Not official image,
"The 1996 film “Space Jam” will never be confused with “The Godfather” or “No Country for Old Men” in terms of great American cinema. In fact, the movie starring Michael Jordan and watered-down Looney Toons stars (Bugs Bunny’s edgy days of impersonating Hitler were long over by this point) was mostly panned by critics.
