Next Year, Give Chief Jim Billie the Grammy

Alright everybody, I have a new cause. I will not take solid food until this song -- “Big Alligator” by Chief Jim Billie -- wins a Grammy. In fact, I vow to kill myself if this doesn’t win, like, all the Grammys. Do you hear that Grammy people? Do you hear that Kanye West?

I know your Mom just died. But this guy’s dog got eaten by a gator. OK? A fucking alligator. Let’s all just take a minute to think about what that means. --Calvin Godfrey
