After being in the spotlight for many years, fans of Ye will finally get a deeper look into the rapper's life. Described as a "step inside the journey of Kanye West," the three-part documentary will be out on Netflix next month. Here's everything you need to know about jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy.
The news was announced on Monday during a press release: "Filmmakers Coodie and Chike have created an extraordinary film and we’re honored that they have trusted TIME Studios to produce jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” TIME Studios President Ian Orefice said. "We’re excited to partner with Iconic Events Releasing to give the world a chance to first experience the once-in-a-generation storytelling in theaters." We, too, are very excited to watch the documentary. Luckily we won't have to wait until Netflix drops it, because Act 1 of the 3 part series will be available for audiences to watch in theatres around the country, thanks to Iconic Events Releasing.
Act 1 will introduce Mr. West and give us a look into the artist's childhood. More information on what to expect was given after the official trailer was dropped. Throughout the over one-minute-long video, we see bits and pieces of the 44-year old's life. From recovering from the 2002 car crash and Ye calling himself a genius, to the notorious concert performance with Kid Cudi at the Yeezy Season 3/The Life of Pablo listening party, we'll be getting a BTS like no other. Fans should expect to see many iconic moments that the famous rapper has been through. The Ceo of Iconic Events Releasing, Steve Bunnell, said in a statement that the documentary is a "must-see" for fans. "Through his work as a performer, producer, and entrepreneur, few artists or businessmen have had a greater impact on worldwide popular culture than Kanye West over the last twenty years," Bunnell explained.
jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy is set to premiere this month at Sundance Film Festival, which described the anticipated doc as, “Kanye West in three acts. The story beyond the iconic music, an intimate and empathetic chronicle featuring never-before-seen footage from 21 years in the life of a captivating figure.”
Don't forget to stream Ye's documentary on Netflix starting February 16th, or head to your local theatre once it's released February 10.
