Social Issues, Cultural Taboos To Be Examined In Netflix's 'Trigger Warning With Killer Mike'

Netflix has announced a new, six-episode original series that will star rapper and activist Killer Mike.

In Trigger Warning with Killer Mike (real name Michael Santiago Render) will set out “to confront important social issues and misconceptions that impact the black community.”

Trigger Warning is about examining cultural taboos and giving viewers the space to examine the “what ifs” and “why nots” that limit how some people move and operate in the world,” Render said in a statement. “In six episodes, we explore the human condition using nontraditional approaches. Not everyone will agree with my methods (and some of what we’re putting out is fucking crazy), but this show is about embracing your freedom to challenge societal expectations and conformity. This show is if an anarchist determined the status quo.”

The official description from Netflix reads: Conducting a different social experiment in each episode — including only spending money in the black community for three days, helping the Crips cash in on its personal brand by launching a line of soda, rethinking public school’s approach to education, and more — Killer Mike puts forward powerful, controversial ideas to help reshape perception in America.

The series debuts Jan. 18, 2019. Watch a teaser below:
