Kanye West Documentary Reportedly Bought by Netflix for $30M

 According to reports, Netflix has purchased the rights to a new Kanye West documentary film that is 21-years in the making.

Directors Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah compiled archival footage spanning Ye’s 20+ year career and will feature never-before-seen footage of Kanye from the ’90s. It’s reported that the film was sold to the streaming giant for $30 million.

Coodie and Chike have worked with Kanye for quite a while and directed some of his earlier videos, namely a version of “Jesus Walks” and they helped co-direct “Through the Wire.”

The title of the project has not been disclosed, but Billboard reports it will debut later this year.
