#Roommates, if you’re a long-time fan of Kanye West, then you know that he consistently documents practically every aspect of his life with the intent of bringing his fans the ultimate documentary—and it looks like fans will finally be able to see it. According to recent reports, streaming service giant Netflix just bought a multi-part documentary on the life of Kanye West for a whopping $30 million!
Kanye West has been documenting his life ever since he entered the entertainment industry 20 years ago and luckily for his devoted legion of fans, all of the behind the scenes moments of the legendary rapper/producer/designer’s life will officially be available for all to see. @Billboard reports, Netflix recently agreed to pay $30 million for the rights to stream an official Kanye West documentary that is said to be 20 years in the making.
The multi-part project comes from Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, better known as professional duo Coodie and Chike—who are familiar to Kanye fans for directing his groundbreaking videos, “Through The Wire” and “Jesus Walks.” Additionally, sources say that while he is not creatively involved in the documentary, he has essentially given his blessing by allowing Coodie and Chike to film him for over two decades.
The as-yet-untitled documentary will feature never-before-seen archival footage of Kanye with unlimited access. Simmons revealed that he has been consistently filming Ye since the late 90s when he was back in Chicago. The documentary will not only highlight Kanye’s rise to fame, but also the death of his mother Donda West, his billion-dollar fashion empire Yeezy and his recent 2020 presidential run.
As of now, there is no specific release date for the documentary, although reportedly it’s said to be dropping on Netflix sometime this year.
