Killer Mike is an agent of havoc in the trailer for his new Netflix series, Trigger Warning

“Anything that doesn’t help black people needs to be burned the fuck down now,” Killer Mike says at the top of the Trigger Warning trailer. The rapper’s six-part Netflix series will find him conducting a different “social experiment” in each episode, the likes of which include advocating for a black Jesus and helping the Crips brand their own line of soda.

Though comedy is clearly at the forefront of the series, a press release notes that Killer Mike’s aim is to “confront important social issues and misconceptions that impact the black community.” And, by the looks of the trailer, it appears he’ll recruit and alienate people from various points of the racial spectrum along the way.
