Trevor Jackson likes to flex his singing, dancing, acting and directing skills at the same damn time whenever he can. His multitude of talents are on full display once again in the music video for his new single "Warning." The track is his first release from his forthcoming LP Rough Drafts Pt. 2, and its visuals are highly entertaining with a racially charged yet comedic plot.
Trevor and his preppy crew arrive at a fancy restaurant ready to dine after a round of golf. Unfortunately, they get slowed down by Jackson's grown-ish co-star Deon Cole who plays a racist maître d'. Deon tries to keep them out of the establishment, but he reluctantly lets them after conferring with his white boss. Once inside, Trevor and his friends find the all-white diners clutching their pearls and holding their purses for dear life as the party gets seated. After that, the single's trap beat finally drops and things really pop off. Trevor and his posse come out of their polos and sweaters, trading them in for the finest of stereotypical urban attire while waving guns around, twerking and making it rain. Directed by Trevor himself, the "Warning" visual dares to poke fun at the current racial climate but also touches on issues of class and perception.
Rough Drafts Pt. 2 will be released this spring, so be on the lookout for more heat from Trevor to drop in the coming weeks. When he's not in the studio or on the grown-ish set, he found time work on Jordan Peele's upcoming YouTube series Weird City, which premieres February 13th.
