It was only a matter of time before the Jena 6 firestorm spilled over into music. And one Houston rapper is hoping to lead the way.

recently posted the tune Jena 6 on his Myspace music page. It's an attack against the media and chastises, among others, Britney Spears and OJ Simpson.

"Now I could care less about a dog fight/But let them boys get time/We gon' all fight," Gator raps over a rhythmic groove.

Take a listen to the full song in our player to the right. Then read on for Pinc Gator's reasons behind moving on it so quickly:

The Jena 6 has obviously incited lots of emotion. Was your first inclination to write a song?

I did not immediately think of writing a song. I did not know enough about the case to think that way. My brain started racing Tuesday morning at 4 a.m. I have insomnia.

How did it all come together?

It took me a few hours in all to write the song. Once I had enough knowledge about the case, ... I got upset. I did what I felt was important as an artist and as a person with a conscience. I enjoy writing music that has a message or deals with issues in the world.

What are your ultimate hopes for the song?

I just want people to hear the song and be influenced to learn more about the case and see what they can do individually and collectively to make a change and help out the families in Jena. Also, this is a reality check toward us as individuals and a reality check toward the media.

Will you be performing it live?

I plan on performing it next week at the Vault on Tuesday. I just may perform it Saturday at the block party hosted by The Urban Zone and Party 104.9 FM.

What kind of reaction have you gotten so far, if any?

A good number of people like the song, some of my close friends ... were blown away once they actually read up on (the Jena 6) after hearing the song. A few radio DJ's are trying to get it on the air. I'm here to reach the people.

I have to ask about the football helmet.

Well, I wear it because you never know when a fight may break out or a bird may fly above. I have been wearing this same helmet since 1999. I have changed the color three times. Most people either know me as Pinc Gator or the guy with the helmet. I perform with it on at times.

Pinc Gator is outrageous, over the top and pure hip hop! Representing the Dirty South by way of H-Town Gator puts on a shut yo mouth energy laced show! If P-Funk was an emcee they would call him Pinc Gator! Never a dull moment with this man. Helme Music all day.
