If you haven’t gotten enough of Kanye West, well, Netflix is making it easier for you!
According to Complex, a documentary about Kanye West is making its way to streaming giant Netflix later this year. It’s been reported that the streaming service has acquired the right to air it for more than $30 million.
The project will feature never-before-seen footage of West and his interactions over the course of 21 years. Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, known collectively as Coodie and Chike have been filming and keeping the material over the years. They co-directed Ye’s 2003 “Through the Wire” video and the third version of “Jesus Walks.” The project doesn’t have a title yet.
The documentary will be focusing on Yeezy’s rise throughout his career and will feature the highs and lows, both personal and professional. From the early days of his career up until his recent failed presidential bid.
Simmons has been filming West since his early days in the ’90s when he was just starting out in Chicago. The relationship between the filmmaker and the mercurial artist will be supposedly driving the documentary while touching on how West started to rise as an artist, through the death of his mother, Donda West, the work he has done within fashion, and his 2020 presidential run. Simmons has been allowed to film West and his surroundings for 21 years.
West recently released his new Yeezy shoes, the Yeezy 450 in Cloud Whites, and they sold out by 7:01 AM on March 6. The shoes were available on YeezySupply.com and the Adidas app. Sources say that the shoes had a retail value of $200. Now, people are selling the shoes for double the retail value.
After Bloomberg erroneously reported last month that West was worth $6 billion, Forbes did a recalculation and determined that Yeezy is actually worth $1.8 billion.
