Put on your Yeezy hoodie and sit back, because we’ve got a teaser to watch!

On January 10, Netflix released a teaser for the Kanye “Ye” West documentary that has lasted for more than 20 years: jeen-yuhs: a Kanye trilogy. The documentary event, produced by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike ozah and premiered on February 16, will premiere in three acts and is “an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye West’s experience, showcasing both his training days trying to break through and his life today as that brand and global artist, “according to the manager’s description.

The teaser opens with Kanye in New York in 2002. “I have Coodie on camera,” the rapper says. “Rhymefest just there.”

“Fest and I had a fight in the car,” he continues. “I feel like he disrespected me. I tried to say that I was not a genius.”

“But who are you to consider yourself a genius?” Rhymefest responds.

The clip continues with footage of Kanye in the studio performing alongside other musicians, including Jay Z and Pharrell williams. “You very rarely meet independent people,” Pharrell explains in the teaser. “This man can do it all himself. He saw it.”
