Killer Mike is taking his talents to Netflix with a new documentary-series called Trigger Warning with Killer Mike. 

In the new six-episode Netflix original series, the Grammy award-winning rapper and activist sets out to confront important social issues and misconceptions that impact the Black community in a pretty unusual way.

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 — he puts forward powerful, controversial ideas to help reshape perception in America.

In the trailer, we see snippets from the series between a strong declaration of the activist’s intentions.

“I want to introduce people to new thoughts and concepts,” he says into a megaphone while standing on the street in one scene. In another, we watch him help the Crips gang develop their own brand of soda with the help of a super-white consultant. If you think that sounds wild…wait until you get to the part where the rapper says he needs “to produce educational pornography.”

Killer Mike says he can forgive Bette Midler, but she needs to do better
