The documentary has been in the works for decades now and explores the life of the rapper, producer, fashion designer, and ‘politician’.

Featuring never-before-seen footage, the documentary scheduled for release later this year, follows Kanye West’s music and fashion career, as well as his 2020 presidential bid and the death of his mother, Donda. According to Billboard, the multi-part series has been sold to Netflix for $30 million, though a source from Variety disputes this figure.

Netflix acquired the series from music video producing team Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Oza. Coodie & Chike, the duo behind Kanye West’s Jesus Walks (Version 3) and Through the Wire music videos, have been documenting West’s movements over the past two decades.

Kanye recently made comments on Joe Rogan’s podcast about wanting to acquire Universal Music Group.
