Kanye West closes his eyes in pain as jaw is wired shut in new look at Netflix documentary

Netflix has released a brand new trailer for Kanye West’s highly-anticipated documentary series titled jeen-yuhs.

The three-part series is slated as a three-week event that has been 21 years in the making, and it’s due to launch on the streaming platform on February 13, so set those calendar alerts.

The fresh 70-second clip offers glimpses at Kanye humming Through The Wire with his jaw wired shut after being involved in a car crash in 2002.

He famously recorded the track, which was his debut single, two weeks after being admitted to the hospital, with his mouth still wired to his face for reconstructive surgery.

Elsewhere in the video, Kanye is also confronted about calling himself a genius.

‘Me and Fest got into an argument,’ he tells the camera. ‘God, I feel like he disrespected me, man. Trynna say I wasn’t a genius yet.’

‘Rarely do you encounter self-contained people,’ a voiceover says. ‘This man can do everything himself. He livin’ it.’

Kanye then adds: ‘It was like God saying, “I’m about to hand you the world, just know at any given time I could take it away from you”.’

Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy is an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye’s experience, showcasing both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist.

The first trailer for the series arrived in September and saw Kanye and Mos Def rapping their track Two Words from his 2004 album The College Dropout.

The footage was recorded in New York in 2002, with the pair showcasing their talent in front of a group of friends.

The documentary is said to also explore Kanye’s failed 2020 presidential bid as well as the death of his mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 aged 58 following complications from cosmetic surgery.

In April 2021, it was reported that Kanye had sold the film to Netflix for a cool $30million (£22million) , with co-producer Clarence ‘Codie’ Simmons having filmed him since the late 1990s.

It’s not yet known how much of the star’s mental health battle in recent years or his marriage and now divorce from wife Kim Kardashian will be featured.
