Netflix dropped the trailer for the jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy documentary Friday, and in the clip, Kanye West predicted his rise to superstardom.
In video shot at the beginning of his career over 20 years ago, Ye said, “i just think it was in God’s plan. I just think He has me here for a reason and I have have something to say. There might be people who are better programmers, better rappers. I think I won because I had the heart.” Kanye added, “Hopefully with God’s blessings, there’s should not be no way for me to lose.”
jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy held its world premiere virtually last week at the Sundance Film Festival.
Clarence “Coodie” Simmons, who produced and directed the film with Chike Ozah, says in the trailer, “When I first put the camera on him when I became a producer in ’98, knew he was destined for greatness.”
Two weeks ago, West demanded final approval of the project, writing on Instagram, “I’m going to say this kindly for the last time. I must get final edit and approval on this doc before it releases on Netflix. Open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image,” he continued. “Thank you in advance.”
His demand was rejected.
On February 10, Act 1 of the three-part documentary, which also features Pharrell Williams, Jay-Z and many more, will debut in theaters nationwide for a one-day engagement. The film premieres in a three-week event on Netflix beginning February 16.
