A documentary on the life and career of American rapper Kanye West with over two decades of footage has been acquired by Netflix.
According to a report in Billboard, the music mogul turned fashion designer wants it to be a multi-part documentary and the directors are Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah aka Coodie & Chike, who helmed West’s music videos for “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks.”
While Billboard puts the sale at £21.7million (US $30million), a source told Variety that figure is inaccurate. The series is expected to be released later this year.
The series reportedly has unseen footage of Kanye West and will cover his music and fashion business, the death of his mother, and his failed presidential bid.
Earlier this year, West won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for his 2019 album ‘Jesus Is King’. The award marked his 22nd Grammy win overall, tying him with Jay-Z for most Grammys for a hip-hop artist.
