What to expect
The directors of jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, analyzed footage include the genesis behind the video for West’s 2003 debut single “Through the Wire” — Coodie and Chike’s first joint project — as well as their impressions of the future superstar then and now. West was a kid coming in for haircuts at a local Chicago barbershop when Coodie met him.
Chike positions the documentary as a “whole history lesson of music. We’re crossing generations in three films. At the end, Kanye is collaborating with artists that were babies. But the crazy part is that Kanye’s a throughline; still as relevant at the end as he in the beginning because his music passes the test of time.”
An official synopsis for the documentary reads: “Filmed over two decades, Jeen-yuhs is an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye’s experience, showcasing both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist.”
