Netflix drops first look at Kanye West documentary that has been 20 years in the making

Netflix has dropped a sneak peak at its upcoming Kanye West documentary.

The three-part film, titled Jeen-Yuhs, is set to follow the Yeezus rapper over a 20-year period and will show behind-the-scenes footage of the star as his career exploded to global superstardom.

Although a release date has not been announced yet, the streaming giant has shared a two-minute teaser featuring Kanye and Mos Def rapping their track Two Words from his 2004 album The College Dropout, and good God it did not disappoint.

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

Fans are already loving what they’ve seen and rushed to celebrate the news of the new documentary.

‘Learning about Kanye is always fun. Can’t wait for this!!!!’ enthused one.

Echoing a similar sentiment, another penned: ‘Finally the documentary on the greatest artist of this generation!!’

‘Finally the greatest artist of our generation and one of the greatest of all times gets his documentary. Will be lit knowing his side of the story,’ added a third.

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, 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.

Last month, Kanye finally released his long-awaited 10th studio album Donda after months of delays.

The album, which is named after his late mother, features material from controversial figures Marilyn Manson and DaBaby.
