Kanye West continues to be one of the most dominant artists in the world, as well as some of the most controversial. From constantly putting out number one albums, to shockingly supporting Donald Trump in 2018, Ye knows how to make headlines. Now, a Netflix documentary is on the way, about his life, from his early days to becoming a star in music, his mother’s death, and more.
Documentary To Arrive Sometime Next Year
This Kanye documentary will be titled “Jeen-Yuhs,” and will be directed by Coodie and Chike. This project will be released in three parts, as never-before-seen footage is also included.
The project will also dive into his time at Roc-A-Fella Records, building his Yeezy sneaker and clothing brand, and even his 2020 presidential campaign run, which didn’t work out very well for Kanye.
The official trailer for Jeen-Yuhs has also been released, as it displays Kanye in New York, in 2002, with legendary rapper, Mos Def. Kanye also dropped a hot freestyle of his own, in this clip.
Kanye Also Earned His 1oth Consecutive Number One Album This Summer
Kanye West also trended on social media heavily at the end of this summer, due to his 10th studio album, “Donda.” This project was delayed three times, as Ye also held three-album listening events.
Two took place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, in Atlanta, and the final one was in his hometown of Chicago, at Soldier Field. Donda ended up containing 27 songs, with appearances from Jay Z, The Weeknd, Lil Baby, and more. It also became his 10th straight number one album, and Kanye became the first artist in this century to debut 10 number one.
He also tied Eminem, for having the most consecutive number one albums in Billboard 200 chart history.
Kanye Is In the Middle Of a Divorce With Kim Kardashian
Another subject that is likely going to be discussed in this Netflix documentary, is Kanye’s marriage to Kim Kardashian. The two initially began dating in 2012 and ended up tying the knot, in 2014. Their divorce was announced in January of this year though, as Kim went on to file paperwork, in mid-February.
There has since been speculation that the divorce may not go through though, due to Kim appearing at the final “Donda” album listening event, in a white Balenciaga wedding dress. That appeared to give hints to fans, that she and Kanye may actually be trying to work things out and reconcile.
Kanye’s Yeezy Brand Continues To Dominate As Well
Kanye is known as an iconic artist, but his business endeavors outside of music are still highly successful. The Netflix documentary is expected to explore his early days of launching his Yeezy brand, starting with his Nike Yeezy sneakers.
Ye then went on to sign with Adidas, and sales still skyrocketed. To this day, release dates are still hectic, as the sneakers and clothes sell out quickly, with many fans missing the opportunities to purchase these items online.
Kanye’s clothes and sneakers due get criticized many times, due to their unusual designs, but they still bring in millions of dollars.
