American over-the-top content platform and Production Company, Netflix has purchased a documentary about the life of American rapper, Kanye West.
The company which was founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in Scotts Valley, California contains contents of his life for over two decades and now the rapper has reportedly sold a documentary to Netflix for $30 million.
Before this development, Simmons started working with West since the ’90s, capturing behind-the-scenes footage and chronicling his rise to superstardom, a source revealed.
The music mogul/fashion designer wants it to be a multi-part documentary and the directors are Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah aka Coodie & Chike, who helmed West’s music videos for “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks”, a report in Billboard stated.
On the major content of the documentary, “the rapper and producer’s rise to success and fame’s impact on him as well hip-hop’s impact on popular culture and the world’s evolving relationship with celebrity” will be revealed.
According to another reliable source, the project will also address personal matters such as the death of West’s mother, Donda.
“While West is not creatively involved in the production, the second source says he essentially has given his support by allowing himself to be filmed by Coodie & Chike for 21 years.” Meanwhile, there is also a report that the project will debut sometime in 2022 on the streaming service.
