Kanye West has landed a Netflix deal for his documentary. Here’s a look at a possible release date for the documentary and what viewers can expect from it.
On April 6, the news of Netflix landing Kanye’s documentary was confirmed. This comes months after it was reported Kanye and Kim Kardashian have filed for divorce. Amid his marriage woes, the rapper had been vocal about working on new music. It is unclear when it will be coming out. Until then, let’s look at the details of his Netflix documentary.
When is Kanye West’s Netflix documentary releasing?
As of now, no release date has been confirmed for the documentary. It seems to be a work in progress. However, it does not look like the fans will have to wait for a long time as the documentary is a collection of footages and home videos that were taken over two decades.
In short, the content of the documentary has already been shot. That being said, Netflix is known to do a marvelous job when it comes to real-life documentaries. One can expect some time going in towards editing and selection of footage.
What will the documentary be about?
Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, better known as music video duo Coodie & Chike, are directing the documentary. Netflix landed the deal for $30 million, as reported by Billboard.
The documentary does not have a name yet, and Kanye does not have creative control over it. Coodie first started filming the series in the 90s. Since then, he has managed to capture the raw and happy moments from Kanye’s life.
What can you expect from Kanye West’s documentary?
The documentary is expected to show the rise and some of the falls of the rapper. Since the footage dates back to the 90s, the documentary will also shed light on Coodie’s and Kanye’s relationship over the years.
At the same time, the documentary will touch upon Kanye’s personal life. Billboard reports it will also talk about Kanye’s mother, Donda West’s death. It will also see the shift in the rapper’s career as he turns towards the fashion industry and decides to run for Presidency. It is unclear if the documentary will also focus on Kim and Kanye’s relationship.
