The first episode of Kanye West ‘s epic three-part Netflix documentary “Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy” opens at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, January 23. The four-and-a-half-hour film begins in 1999 at the start of his career in the music industry.
The first episode covers the period 1999-2001, when Ye signed to Roc-A-Fella Records. The second episode continues until 2005, when he released his second studio album, “Late Registration“, and a double Grammy win. The final episode quickly takes viewers to cover the next 16 years of Kanye West‘s life, the Trump era and the death of his beloved mother Donda West in 2007.
The project will be released on Netflix on Wednesday, starting on February 16. However, like many of Kanye‘s projects, he doesn‘t want anyone in the world to see it until he‘s fully satisfied.

Kanye West recently took to Instagram to demand that Netflix allow him to approve the editing of the documentary.
“I’m going to say this kindly for the last time. I must get final edit and approval on this doc before it releases on Netflix. Open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image. Thank you in advance.”
