The hype for Coodie and Chike’s Netflix documentary, jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, has reached its subject, Kanye West, who wants a last-minute request fulfilled.
According to HipHopDX, Ye took to Instagram to publicly know that he wants Drake to narrate the highly anticipated film, which chronicles the G.O.O.D Music founder’s whirlwind career through never-before-seen footage captured over the last 20-plus years.
Ye shared a text conversation with the directing duo, writing, “I need Drake to do the narration.”
And while it appears the 6 god is down for the get-down, as pointed out by The Shade Room, liking the Chicago megastar’s post — the choices of final cut are not up to Yeezy.
The 44-year-old has addressed the documentary coming out, recently denying the completed version and publicly demanding them to “open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image.”
“Me and Chike have a company called Creative Control,” Coodie — who alongside Chike has been documenting Kanye’s rise to fame since the late ’90s — told Rolling Stone last week. “Because you don’t want to lose your creative control.”
Add to the mix that the three-part documentary is already complete and days away from its release, and Ye may not get what he wants, but it is still a cool ask nonetheless.
Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy will premiere in theaters on Feb. 10 before being rolled out over three weeks on Netflix beginning Feb. 16.
