Dunno, I love rap, I loved Firefly, but this does not impress me in the slightest, it sounds pretty awful.

Lyrics are shabby and poorly constructed, his rapping is meh and while the sample is cool, it really doesn't combine well with his rapping - he's doing storytelling, which is fine, but he's using a gangsta voice to do it, which really doesn't fit with the atmosphere the song is going for.

But... Jayne is a girl's name.

I can't tell if you're saying that seriously, or that you've watched Firefly and know that that's a verbatim quote from River Tam.
I think you've answered your own ponderings. :)

OT:
Firefly was a tasty mix of spaceships and westerns. I don't see why a rap can't mix it up a bit. :) I don't like blanketing "all rap is awful." Blanket statements are never true. Give it up for a case by case basis; like this one. Content of rap songs is what kills it for me. If it's about bling and boats, I'm not interested. But a rap about a timeless show killed before its prime? I'm on board, capt'n.

Wow, you sorta forget what proper rap is until you hear it again. Mate has gotta keep doing this.

I'm going to piss the word firefly into the first snow of winter and see if it gets onto the front of this website.

Been listening to this for a few weeks now, I really enjoy the character pieces, but the rest of the songs are pretty forgetable. But it's worth it for the character pieces, the one about Book and Kaylee are probably the best, but the Wash, River and Jayne ones are pretty good too.

Adam WarRock's stuff keeps constantly improving, this whole album is a lot better than his West Coast mixtape, that only had a few songs I really enjoyed, USAgent being probably my favourite and those were still a lot more repetitive.

I was playing off of your specific wording, the nature of the site in general, and attempting (poorly, apparently) to express that I really liked the thing you linked.

Trust me, I get what you're saying, son. I may be white as the driven snow, but two years in Job Corps had a lasting effect. Hell, we covered local vernacular the first week in.

Oh make no mistake, I am. I may have a Ghetto Pass, but it's probationary. Kinda like a learner's permit.
