American rapper, producer and entrepreneur, Kanye West has sold a documentary about his life to Netflix for $30 million. The rapper turned fashion designer had allowed cameras to capture his life over two decades, documenting the star’s stardom. Billboard reports that Kanye has requested the documentary be a multi-part one with directors Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah popularly known as Coodie & Chike, who directed videos for the rapper’s “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks”.
The project which will address issues about the rapper’s late mother, Donda will detail “the rapper and producer’s rise to success and fame’s impact on him as well hip-hop’s impact on popular culture and the world’s evolving relationship with celebrity,” according to Punch.
“While West is not creatively involved in the production, a second source says he essentially has given his support by allowing himself to be filmed by Coodie & Chike for 21 years,” Punch added.
The documentary is expected to air in 2022 on Netflix.
