Before Killer Mike and El-P return as the formidable Run the Jewels sometime next year, Mike has a new project on the way in the form of a TV show with Netflix. The provocatively titled Trigger Warning With Killer Mike is scheduled to arrive early next year, promising to take a look at cultural taboos.
“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," Killer Mike explained upon announcing the show. “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.”
El-P jumped on Twitter to offer his thoughts on the show, which he calls "fucking amazing."
On Tuesday (Dec. 12), El-P finally gave an update on the next Run the Jewels album, promising that it'll be arriving sometime next summer. "I'm sorry if that schedule disappoints anyone but we need the time to make sure the music doesn't," he tweeted. The most recent record from the duo, RTJ3, arrived right at the end of 2016.
Look out for Trigger Warning on Netflix Jan. 18 next year.
