The recently 2022 Sundance Film Festival premiered documentary ‘JEEN-YUHS’ is a three-part docu-series that walks us through the journey of becoming Kanye West, which is set to showcase on Netflix in February.
Netflix just revealed the trilogy’s latest official trailer showcasing some vintage clips of the creative icon-in-the-making, in his beginning years. The trailer starts off with a video from 2002 where the one that now goes by Ye is hanging out with hip hop artist Rhymefest in New York, the latter of which questions why West should deem himself a genius. Within the one minute clip, we also get a glimpse at old bits of the DONDA artist in the studio with Pharrell and Jay-Z, a small snippet of him recovering from his life-changing 2002 car accident, performances on stage, his iconic moment with Kid Cudi at the Yeezy Season 3/The Life of Pablo listening party and more.
“It was like God saying “I’m about to hand you the world, just know at any given time I could take it away from you”, West states towards the latter half of the video, likely referring to the humility and gratitude that he received following the aforementioned car crash.
Be on the lookout for JEEN-YUHS to release exclusively on Netflix come February 16.
