By suggestion by @egotripland Twitter follower @jonathandoster, we bring you our latest installment of People Who Don't Rap But Have Rapper Names: Calvin Trillin . The acclaimed American journalist, humorist, food writer, and poet is a revered author and longtime contributor to The Nation . We also recall as young'uns the dry wit of his guest appearances on Late Night with David Letterman (back when people who wrote books got invited to be on TV). Funny then how Trillin's name has transcended hip-hop eras to where his handle now makes him sound like some H-Town answer to Snoop Dogg Broadus. But don't get it twisted, newbies - Calvin has always been coolin'. Trill recognize Trillin.
