The rapper explores faith and more on his new Netflix series, 'Trigger Warning.'
Killer Mike visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (Jan. 17) to discuss his new Netflix series called Trigger Warning. The six-episode miniseries, available to stream today (Jan. 18), sees the Run the Jewels rapper addressing the economy, gang culture, education and faith -- and apparently even prompted him to start his own religion.
“Jesus, the character in the Bible, is amazing. He’s a superhero, right? He fights injustice with the church; he rallies against government. … It’d be a great graphic novel. The only problem is that we don’t get our black Spider-Man," the rapper told Colbert. "For me, I think that, to raise a confident child in terms of divinity and matters of spiritualism, they need to see people who look like them or they need to see a deity who looks like them.”
