Netflix’s highly anticipated Kanye West documentary “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy” began streaming last week, but you would be forgiven for losing track of West’s constantly evolving stance on the film. In the weeks leading up to its release he publicly demanded to re-edit the film in order to “control [his] image,” and baselessly threatened to block the documentary from being released. Soon after, he once again took to Instagram to request that Drake record new narration for the documentary. But he eventually attended a screening of the film arranged by Netflix and was seen embracing the film’s directors before addressing the crowd. Since then, he has used his social media following to passionately promote the film, and even celebrated when it briefly became the most viewed item on Netflix.
Despite his divorce, the documentary gives viewers unpresidential access behind the scenes of his transition from Kanye West the producer to the vision of what he has established himself as an artist. Episode two is now streaming on the Netflix Platform.
