A documentary series that includes two decades of footage and home videos of Kanye West’s life and work has landed at Netflix.
It was Billboard who first reported the news claiming that the sources cite putting the price tag at Netflix. The figure is reported to be $30 million, however, another source close to the matter has claimed it is not an accurate figure. Kanye’s documentary series will include never-before-seen footage of him and will also cover his career in music and fashion.
This will definitely also include his failed presidential bid in 2020, and the death of his mother, Donda West. The series will be multi-part and does not have a title yet. It hails from music video producing duo Clarence Simmons and Chike Ozah. They are better known as Coodie and Chike who directed and produced Kanye’s music video, Jesus Walks (Version 3).
They’ve also produced Through The Wire and the 2012 ESPN ’30 for 30′ documentary, Benji. The documentary was about Benjamin Wilson. Coodie and Chike have also produced music videos for Erykah Badu, Lupe Fiasco, and others. It is still not clear if the documentary will involve insight into Kim and Kanye’s now estranged relationship. The Netflix project is expected to be released this year according to Billboard. Kanye won the first gospel Grammy last month and the 22nd career Grammy for his Jesus is King album.
This was marked as the first time since 2013 that he has received honors from the Recording Academy. Kanye also won rap/hip hop album for Jesus is King and rap/ hip hop recorded song for Follow God. This was in addition to winning the traditional gospel album for Jesus is Born at the GMA.
“Kim is definitely sad but she feels confident in her decision to divorce him…”
Meanwhile, on the other hand, Kim Kardashian West will be reportedly documenting her $2.1 billion divorce from Kanye West on television. The reality star has had the past few months of her life filmed for the final season of her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
She filed for divorce from Kanye after almost seven-years of marriage. Although their show is ending with another season, the family has signed new deals with Hulu and Star. They are said to have a new unscripted show that is set to debut this year. It is been reported that the program will also highlight the split.
A source had revealed that the Skims founder’s split will be documented on the last season of KUWTK. It is said to be the topic of discussion on their new show and it has also been said that Kanye is very unlikely to be featured in any parts of it.
According to previous reports, Kim was said to be sad but relieved after filing for divorce. An insider revealed that she feels confident in her decision. The insider said, “Kim is definitely sad but she feels confident in her decision to divorce him because she knows it’s what’s best for herself and her family. She’s already felt like she’s been divorced for months now. It’s been a long time coming and she feels relieved to be able to finally move on.”
