Kanye West Isn’t Happy w/ Netflix Seemingly Over Their Control Over His Doc, ‘Open The Edit Room Immediately’

Kanye West has time today (January 21).

Ye took to Instagram to vent his frustrations with the popular streaming network Netflix. Kanye shared a promotional cover for his upcoming documentary, Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, with the company. In the caption, he said,

“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.”

The first part of Ye’s documentary, titled, Jeen-Yuhs—called Act 1 (Vision), is reportedly decades in the making. Pitchfork points out it Act 1 premieres Sunday, January 23, at Sundance. According to the report, the first part will hit Netflix on February 16, and the next acts will premiere in the following weeks.

The doc is directed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah (aka Coodie & Chike). Per the outlet, the directors recently revealed to Variety that Kanye wasn’t given the final cut on the documentary. “I said, ‘Dude, you have to trust me.’ And he did, 100%,” Coodie told the publication. “Mind you, when his team and the business-people have gotten involved, they’re of course going to have their say. But I needed to tell this story. It’s not about making Kanye likable or not. The footage doesn’t lie. What makes the film special is that it’s not something definitive; it’s his journey through my vision.”
