Netflix recently announced lots of new content and projects coming to the streaming service. One of the documentaries is about Kanye West and we have a new clip to share with you. Netflix announced the release of a new multi-part Kanye West documentary that shares a teaser trailer for the project as part of the big Tudum fan event. The new movie, with the title Jeen-Yuhs, was acquired for $ 30 million, and has been in business for 21 years. This document contains rare and never before seen footage of West, including home videos and behind the scenes footage of him in the studio. Jeen-Yuhs hits the streaming site in 2022, but Netflix has not yet set a release date.
Jeen-Yuhs was created by filmmakers Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah (aka Coodie & Chike), who run the company Creative Control. The couple also instructed Kanye West “Through the Wire” visual as well as the third version of the “Jesus Walks” video. Creative Control produces the document together with Time Studios. West is reportedly not creatively involved in the project, but he has allowed Coodie & Chike to film him for over two decades.
Billboard first reported that the documentary was purchased by Netflix back in April. Below you can see the first look of Jeen-yuhs, Netflix’s unprecedented documentary about West, in which Kanye rapped with Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def).
Filmed over two decades, Jeen-yuhs is an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye’s experience, showing both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist, “Netflix said recently in a statement about the film.
Another source told Billboard that Simmons has been filming West since the 1990s in Chicago, and their relationship serves as the backbone of the documentary series, which will tell the story of the rapper and producer’s rise to success and the fame impact on him as well as hip-humps’ influence on popular culture. and the world’s evolving relationship to celebrities. Needless to say, anything that has to do with Kanye West will bring lots of attention and Netflix hope so after spending so much money on the series. For example, West made headlines when he filed a legal change of name to “Ye.”

West’s Donda Listening parties this summer were incredibly successful, earning him $ 12.7 million.

These figures include 357.4 million on-demand streams and 37,000 in net sales.
