Like a dude throwing a harpoon at a whale and shit

from Das Racist – Shorty Said Lyrics on Rap Genius


The “dude throwing a harpoon” is likely Queequeeg from Moby Dick, a harpooner on Ahab’s ship from the fictional island of Kokovoko. Melville portrays Queequeg as a racial outsider; Ishmael first meets him while Queequeg is carrying several shrunken heads, and he is perpetually described in terms of darkness.
