The three-part Netflix documentary about Ye, formerly known as Kanye West before his successful petition for a legal name change last fall, jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, is coming to Netflix on February 16, 2022. Before hitting the streaming platform, the first episode premiered virtually at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday night. But like anything with the Ye, something unexpected happened, with the rapper taking to Instagram just prior to the film’s Sundance premiere to demand directors Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah “open the edit room” for him to give his “final edit and approval.” But the rapper’s friends did not abide, and the first episode premiered as planned. Simmons and Ozah’s jeen-yuhs is about Ye’s life, covering everything from the 2007 death of the rapper’s mother Donda West to his mental health to his failed presidential bid in 2020.
