The official teaser trailer of Netflix’s of jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy has arrived today (Jan. 10). As previously reported on by REVOLT, the very first look of the series already arrived back in September.
From visionary filmmakers Coodie and Chike, the new release will premiere on Feb. 16 and continue on for three weeks. The trailer includes clips of monumental moments from not just only his career, but his early life as an artist as well. In the newly released clip, an old conversation between the Chicago star and Rhymefest takes center stage to set the tone. “Me and [Rhymefest] got into an argument,” a young ‘Ye says to the camera. “I feel like he disrespected me, man. Tried to say I wasn’t a genius yet.”
“But who are you to call yourself a genius?” rebuttals Rhyme.
Pharrell also makes an appearance to share a few words of praise about Kanye and his multi-talented ways. “Very rarely do you encounter self-contained people. This man can do everything himself. He live in it.
The two-minute First Look clip Netflix shared Saturday (Sept. 25) features ‘Ye and Mos Def, in 2002, rapping their verses from “Two Words” — their collaboration that appears on Yeezy’s The College Dropout album. Coodie is believed to have footage of West from as early as 1998. And the duo previously directed some of ‘Ye’s first music videos, including “Jesus Walks (Version 3),” “Two Words,” and “Through the Wire.”
Billboard reported in April that Netflix had purchased the documentary from Coodie and Chike’s Creative Control company for around $30 million. The doc was also produced by TIME Studios — which produced the Emmy-winning film Space Explorers: The ISS Experience. Fans looking for more information regarding the upcoming documentary can visit Jeen-yuhs.com, a site currently being promoted on Coodie and Chike’s Creative Control IG Stories.
