A new documentary series about the life of Kanye West has been sold to Netflix in a multi-million-dollar deal, according to reports.
Billboard reports that the project will include never-before-seen footage of West, and will explore his music career, his failed presidential campaign last year, and the death of his mother, Donda.
Billboard puts the sale of the series, which will be aired later this year, at $30million. However, a source told Variety that figure is inaccurate.
The series was made by the production team of Clarence "Coodie" Simmons and Chike Ozah, who have been documenting the rapper's movements over the past two decades, and shot West’s music videos for Jesus Walks (Version 3) and Through the Wire.
Earlier this year, West won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for his 2019 album Jesus Is King. The award marked his 22nd Grammy win overall, tying him with Jay-Z for most Grammys for a hip-hop artist.
