Check out the Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy trailer below:
Jeen-Yuhs spans over twenty years and features never-before-seen footage of the musician and fashion icon. Clarence Simmons is helming the multi-part docuseries, and Chike Ozah directed the third music video for “Jesus Walks” and “Through the Wire.” They previously did the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary Benji and A Kid From Coney Island that chronicles Stephon Marbury.
In an interview late last year, directors Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah spoke about the upcoming film, explicitly noting that the documentary will cross over three different generations of Kanye’s life.
“There’s a whole history lesson that’s happened,” Ozah says of the entire documentary. “We’re crossing generations in three films. At the end of the film, Kanye’s collaborates with artists that were babies. The crazy part is, Kanye’s a through-line. He’s still as relevant at the end as he is in the beginning because his music [has] passed the test of time.”
