Kanye West has been documenting his life ever since he entered the entertainment industry 20 years ago and luckily for his devoted legion of fans; all of the behind the scenes moments of the legendary rapper/producer/designer’s life will officially be available for all to see. Billboard reports, Netflix recently agreed to pay $30 million for the rights to stream; an official Kanye West documentary that is said to be 20 years in the making.
The multi-part project comes from Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, better known as professional duo Coodie and Chike; the Duo are familiar to Kanye fans for directing his groundbreaking videos; “Through The Wire” and “Jesus Walks.” Additionally, sources say that while he is not creatively involved in the documentary; he has essentially given his blessing by allowing Coodie and Chike to film him for over two decades.

An official date for the release of the documentary has not been announced; but word on the streets, is that it should be dropping sometime next year.
