A documentary covering Kanye West’s life and career, which has been in the works for more than two decades, has finally found a home at Netflix. The as-yet-untitled series will reportedly cover the death of the rapper’s mother, Donda, in 2007, as well as his ill-fated presidential run in 2020.
West’s career in fashion and music will also be captured in previously-unseen home videos, alongside footage shot over the course of 21 years by Coodie & Chike — AKA Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, the duo behind West’s videos for “Jesus Walks (Version 3)” and “Through the Wire”.
According to Billboard, the documentary is set to arrive sometime this year, though a spokesperson for Netflix declined to comment. Billboard also initially reported that it was picked up by Netflix for $30 million, though a source has since told Variety that this is “not an accurate figure”.
