Kanye West has started a new feud, this time with Netflix, one of the most popular streaming services. The rapper appeared to issue a threatening threat to the corporation in regards to its upcoming docuseries, Jen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy. Ye published the promotional image alongside a harsh warning to Netflix, demanding the final word on the project “kindly for the last time.”
The Yeezy founder announced his intention to work on the documentary, which has been in the works for several months and is slated to premiere this year. West demanded control of the project and issued a written warning to the production company. “I need to receive the final cut and permission on this documentary before it goes up on Netflix,” he insisted. The Stronger rapper stated he wanted to take control of the series’ narrative and requested that the activities be dealt with as soon as possible.” Open the edit room as soon as possible so I can control my own image,” he continued. “Please accept my thanks in advance.”
According to rumors, Netflix paid more than $30 million for the miniseries. Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, who directed two of West’s debut videos, will direct the project, according to the firm. Simmons is said to have been filming West’s actions since the 1990s, and the series will include never-before-seen material as well as home movies.
According to a source close to the project, it will also cover the circumstances surrounding West’s mother Donda’s death, his transition into the fashion industry, and his failed presidential campaign in 2020. It’s unknown whether the documentary will explore his tumultuous relationship with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and her family.
Earlier this month, an official teaser was revealed. The film will have its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival before being released on Netflix. This isn’t the first drama West has been involved in since the beginning of the year, as Radar has revealed. He had accused Kim of denying him access to his daughter, Chicago, on her fourth birthday last weekend.
Prior to that, he threatened Pete Davidson, the SKIMS founder’s boyfriend, in a lyric from his new song Eazy, which he co-wrote with The Game. The rapper is also being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for reportedly hitting a fan outside of the Soho Warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles.
The rapper’s assertions have elicited no response from Netflix or the companies engaged in the production of the docuseries.
