Infinite Jest

from Das Racist – Girl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

David Foster Wallace’s 1996 epic postmodern novel. Many consider it to have changed the very landscape of American fiction. The book is 1079 pages and chock-full of unprecedented experimentation with the novel as an art form.

So, the girl he’s reading it with is probably pretty smart.

It’s a double entendre. It’s not only a reference to DFW’s Infinite Jest, it’s also a reference to Das Racist themselves.

Heems needs “infinite rest” from making “infinite jests.”
