Everyone has a beautiful story that tells how they became what they are today. While we do not have the privilege to look at every single story that exists, Netflix is giving us an opportunity to hear the story of Kanye West. As we step into the month of February, we get closer to the release of jeen-yuhs: A Kanye West Trilogy. The three-part documentary will follow the journey of Kanye West.
The documentary has been in making for the past 21 years. Hence, we will look at never-seen-before footage from the life of the mega music star. The documentary made its debut at Sundance Film Festival in January 2022. Additionally, the first part of the documentary “Act 1” will premiere in theatres for a special one-day theatrical release on February 10. The other two parts: “Act 2” and “Act 3” will follow in the consecutive weeks.
jeen-yuhs: A Kanye West Trilogy Trailer
Netflix recently released a first-look trailer for the upcoming documentary about Kanye West. Clarence ‘Coodie’ Simmons and Chike Ozah have captured Kanye West for the last 21 years. Hence, we will have a closer than ever insight on the life of the hip-hop icon that Kanye is. “When I first put the camera on this up-and-coming producer back in ’98, I knew he was destined for greatness,” says Simmons in the first look trailer. “The goal was to see how far his dreams would take him, but I had no idea where life would take us next.”
We will be looking at everything Kanye went through, the highs, the lows, and we will see his career foster in front of our eyes. “It felt like the bigger Kanye got, the further we grew apart. But there was more to Kanye’s story that I needed to tell,” Simmons says.
Simmons, Ozah, Leah Natasha Thomas, and Marjorie Clark are the producers for the documentary. Alongside them are Ian Orefice, Rebecca Teitel, Alexa Conway, Mike Beck, Thomson, Connor Schell, Angus Wall, Free Maiden, Gee Roberson, and Nick Tran. Ross Martin, Peter Pham, Kern Schireson, and Lynne Benioff will serve as co-executive producers.
“If I do what I’m supposed to do, people are gonna look back like, ‘Man! Remember dude used to just make beats for people?” says Kanye towards the end of the trailer.
When will the documentary release on Netflix?
You will be able to stream jeen-yuhs on Netflix from February 16, 2022.
