The “intimate” three-part film — which first came out during Netflix’s livestream TUDUM event in September — will capture two decades of the rapper’s life and career; It promises to showcase “both my life as a global brand and artist and my early days trying to break into today’s life”.
Ahead of the documentary’s 2022 premiere, longtime friends and collaborators of Kanye West Simmons and Oza sat down to discuss jean yuso, as well as West’s career trajectory, ‘Netflix Playlist’ showcase during Thursday (December 2).
Part of the seating recalls Simmons meeting West – now legally known as Yeh – for the first time, when he was a kid coming to a local Chicago barbershop for haircuts.
“He would come with the beats,” Simmons recalls in the clip. “I remember he had that one beat JAY-Z chose from H to Izz-O later in life [‘Izzo (H.O.V.A.)’], Yo, it was so sick. Here is this kid with braces… a genius. This dude was not afraid of anything.”
Ozah describes the film as a “complete history lesson in music”. He continued: “We’re crossing generations in three movies. In the end, Kanye is collaborating with actors who were kids. But the crazy part is that Kanye is a throughline; the endings are equally relevant. As in the beginning as their music stands the test of time.”
