This might be a little inside-baseball for a blog post, but here’s an excerpt of a conversation I had with Stonesoup coauthor David Yin:
Josh: Another good example of a fat musician: The Notorious B.I.G.
David: Ah i did not know that! I didn’t even know what The Notorious BIG looked like. But now it makes sense.
Josh: Really? What the fuck, David?
David: Damn i am fucking slow on the uptake.
Josh: So i don’t mind that, but just the fact that you’ve never seen Biggie. . .
David: Biggie Smalls?
David: Same person?
David: See, it’s contradictory. Does big pimpin’ imply fat?
David: Right so maybe i thought he was. . . I dunno. a big personality. a dominant figure. . .
