Netflix & Killer Mike Are Giving Us A “Trigger Warning” With No Due Respect (Trailer)

And wowww… How about Killer Kill From Adamsville is getting his Netflix and no-chill on, too! Killer Mike will have a six-part mini-series that is like… well… Hasan Minhaj meeting Sacha Baron Cohen at a WTF rally with Dr. Umar Johnson as the featured speaker.

“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 f**king crazy), but this show is about embracing your freedom to challenge societal expectations and conformity. This show is as if an anarchist determined the status quo.”
Michael Render pka Killer Mike

“Trigger Warning With Killer Mike” debuts January 18, 2019, on Netflix.

Killer Mike & Colion Noir: The Controversial Gun Conversation (Video)


Interesting and compelling. Usually, the rhetoric on gun control gets dumped onto either side of a ‘wall’ – (1) take the guns or (2) don’t take my guns – and folks on either side of the wall call folks on the other side crazy (or worse).

Well, when we get someone that maybe both sides should LISTEN to, then decide on how ‘crazy’ or not their arguments are, maybe we can take some bricks out of that wall and see good points to consider on each side.

But who is such a ‘someone’ though? How about Killer Mike? Seriously. Watch.

Colion Noir sits down with rapper, actor and activist Killer Mike to have the gun culture conversation no media, politician, celebrity or anti-gun protestor has the courage to engage in.

Just remember: Mike will speak his mind in the clip. Just saying. Now get to playing…

Killer Mike On Why People, White And Black, Are Mad (Video)

Damn. Michael Render with the real talk. Gotta use Killer Mike’s government name because it’s so real! Ever wonder why poor and working class White people vote against their interests… aligning with Republicans who want to defund programs that benefit them and give tax cuts for citizens who make way more than they do? Because the flag-waving and make-American-great-again chanting has them thinking the ‘trickle down’ from those ‘job creators’ will become a wave of prosperity they can ride to the top [and someday join the 1%]?

Nah… Mike says it’s because they’re mad, son!

I think poor White people are mad because the system that promises you something based on that isn’t ever going to give you that … Poor white people during the civil rights movement in Mississippi they were treated as badly as any Black worker. But because there was an imaginary line of race got put there and they can still say they are superior to this person, they never joined with the Black worker to fight better conditions for them all.
Killer Mike

But hold up, Black people. Mike has some biting words for his people, too.

A must watch!

(Yeah. We ALL have a right to be angry. But what are we gonna do about it?)

Don’t Walk! Run The Jewels… NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert (Video)

Let the E&J and lyrics and booming beats FLOW! RTJ on NPR for an intimate, but no-less-energized [Tiny Desk] Concert with rhyme buddies El-P and Killer Mike. Okay, in case you don’t follow Run The Jewels… have any kids leave the F**KING room NOW! Liquor and lyrics laced with profanity and adult dopeness. Party time! Let’s GO!

Mina Tavakoli | February 6, 2017 — Like any good pair of twins, Run the Jewels have a freaky sort of unspoken fraternity. When El-P and Killer Mike strode in with their usual uniforms — Mike in a gold chain as thick as a garter snake, El in a fitted Yankees cap and pair of blue-mirrored sunglasses — the two didn’t have to do as much as nod to one another before upending three tracks from their latest LP, RTJ3, in strange and perfect symbiosis.

El-P (née El-Producto, née Jaime Meline) — rapper, producer, and all-around godfather of the backpacker scene of the late-90’s — and Killer Mike — known for guest features on tracks by Atlanta’s Dungeon Family in the early-aughts, solo work in the mid-to-late ’00s, and perhaps most widely for his very public support of Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign last year — have out-mused each other in a supergroup that somehow seems to get better, louder, and more pertinent since their start in 2013. They represent an ideal evolution of underground hip-hop to mainstream success, mixing a fundamentally activist animus with IMAX-level production without losing a speck of vital force.

On an unseasonably beautiful day in D.C., Run the Jewels was sweaty and sulfuric, ad-libbing with one another in an exchange so slick, easy, and conspiratorial, it felt like we were in on their shared language.

Run the Jewels 3 is available now!

Killer Mike Speaks On His Anger And Fears In The Wake Of More Police Killings Of Black People (Video)

Without fail, Killer Mike is ALWAYS speaking poingnantly with passion about matters affecting the people… his people. Sometimes it’s a wonder how he keeps answering the call to speak. Frustration we all feel, way before he and those of like mind began to #FeelTheBern

This is all truth. No slick talk and no backtracking. Notice how he does not have to couch his statements in the typical ‘all cops are not bad’ rhetoric, because he is out there with the police in his town – forging relationships, ensuring that they will feel/be compelled to protect & serve in his community. He touches on that. He has not abandoned talk on political movements we need to make either: VOTE out the folks who refuse to look out for the people in the community… VOTE THEM OUT! And he continues to bang the drum for a show of Black economic power: Want to move those in power, move your money away from them and toward folks you wish to empower.

None of this is new, but Killer Mike keeps speaking it. As frustrating as it must be. The truth is easy to repeat; because it’s not a ‘platform’ or something he has to ‘make up’ or remember. Watch Mike Render speak on his fears and frustrations with the two recent tragic losses of two Black Lives that did not Matter to cops who took them.

Hidden Colors 4: “The Religion of White Supremacy” (Trailer)

In America you hear talk about Police Brutality, Racism, and how Economics are used to disparage the Black community.  Rarely do we hear talk about the one topic synonymous with all of those which is White Supremacy.  Not saying that White people are superior to Blacks but the mind state of White Supremacy gives birth to so many racial issues not just in the US but the world.

Tariq Nasheed has decided to put this topic front and center with his latest installment of his critically acclaimed Hidden Colors series.  The documentary series that has had important black voices like Dr Francis Cress Welsing (RIP), Dr. Umar Johnson, Dick Gregory.  Also entertainers like Paul Mooney, David Banner, & Nas.  Tariq has released the official trailer and you can bet that organizations like Fox News, StormFront ad other race baiting groups will not be happy.  I look forward to the Atlanta premier and happy to see that Atlanta Rapper/Activist Killer Mike is part of the fourth installment along with Jim Brown, Dr Boyce Watkins to name a few.  So check out the trailer and get ready to go check it out official date not released yet but we will keep you informed here at Jayforce.com

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).
