Netflix released a teaser on Monday for a three-part Kanye West documentary titled jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy that will debut February 16 on the streaming platform.

The teaser clip begins with footage of Kanye near the start of his career in 2002, one year before he released his debut single, “Through the Wire.” It includes scenes in the studio with Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams, the latter of whom says of Kanye, “This man can do everything himself.”

The doc’s first act, Vision, will be shown in theaters nationwide on February 10 for a one-day engagement.

“Filmmakers Coodie and Chike have created an extraordinary film and we’re honored that they have trusted TIME Studios to produce jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” TIME Studios President Ian Orefice says in a statement. “We’re excited to partner with Iconic Events Releasing to give the world a chance to first experience the once in a generation storytelling in theaters.”

Iconic Events Releasing CEO Steve Bunnell adds, “Through his work as a performer, producer, and entrepreneur, few artists or businessmen have had a greater impact on worldwide popular culture than Kanye West over the last twenty years.”

Meanwhile, Gap announced Friday that it’s expanding its partnership with West to include a new line of YZY products in collaboration with fashion house Balenciaga. Balenciaga creative director Demna served as creative director and merchandise designer for Ye’s Donda listening events last year in Atlanta and Chicago. According to Page Six, West is rumored to be planning to shoot a music video with Cardi B at the Banciaga store in Miami this week.
