Regarded as a three-week global event, ‘jeen-yuhs’ is a documentary film charting the career of Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, filmed over two decades. It is divided into three acts and is directed by Coodie & Chike.
‘jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy’ premieres on Netflix on February 16, 2022.
“Twenty-one years ago, Clarence ‘Coodie’ Simmons met Kanye West and saw something so special that he moved from Chicago to New York City to document Ye’s journey to become the next great rapper. Neither of them had any idea where just how far that journey would take them.”
The title ‘jeen-yuhs’ is a play on the word genius and its first act premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival on January 23, 2022.
Filmmaker Coodie navigates through Ye’s formative years, his rise to global fame and everything else until the present.
