Kanye West documentary series

If reports are true, we're getting a Kanye West documentary series later this year.

According to Billboard, it's been in the making for over two decades, and features never before seen footage of the star.

The outlet report Netflix acquired it for $30m, however, a source for Variety claims that figure isn't, 'accurate.'

The series is reportedly directed by Clarence "Coodie" Simmons and Chike Ozah.

You might know them better for their names, Coodie & Chike.

The pair have worked with Kanye on numerous other projects, so it makes sense that they're involved.

They directed and produced Kanye's 2004 music video Jesus Walks (Version 3) and Through the Wire.

The duo also worked on the 2019 Netflix documentary, A Kid From Coney Island.

It's reported their company, Creative Control, will team up with TIME Studios to produce this new documentary series.

The series will follow his rise to fame, his fashion work, the death of his mother, and his 2020 presidential run.

Netflix have yet to comment on these reports.

In other news...
