New Kanye West documentary coming to Netflix

It has reportedly been in the works for over 20 years.

Netflix has reportedly struck a multi-million dollar deal for the rights to a brand-new documentary about Kanye West.

According to Variety, the as-yet-untitled series will feature exclusive footage that spans over two decades in Ye’s life and career. It is expected to cover his rise to fame, the conceptualization of his Yeezy fashion line, the death of his mother and, more recently, his unsuccessful 2020 presidential campaign.

The docuseries is said to be produced by Coodie & Chike, the same video production duo behind West’s 2004 music videos “Jesus Walks (Version 3)” and “Through the Wire.” It is expected to land on Netflix sometime later this year, though an official release date has not been announced.


In March, West’s frequent collaborator Cyhi the Prynce revealed that the rapper has resumed work on his much-anticipated Donda album. Teased at the beginning of 2020, the record was scheduled to drop in July but was postponed indefinitely. However, Cyhi said that West has returned to the project after taking a break.

Last month, Kanye also won his first Gospel award at the 2021 Grammys for his album Jesus is King.
