I’ll say it nicely for the last time

I must obtain final editing and approval of this document before it is released on Netflix

Immediately open the editing room so I can be in charge of my own image

Thanks in advance 😊

Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy is directed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah (aka Coodie & Chike). The directors recently revealed to Variety that West did not receive the final cut of the documentary. “I said, ‘Dude, you gotta trust me.’ And he did, 100 per cent,” Coodie told the publication. “Remember, when his team and the business people get involved, of course they will have a say. needed to tell this story. It’s not about making Kanye likeable or not. The pictures don’t lie. What makes the movie special is that it’s not something definitive; it’s his journey through my vision.

In an interview with IndieWire, Coodie said he wasn’t sure West had seen the film. “His team saw him, and I think they showed him something, but I’m not sure. I haven’t had a conversation with Kanye about it,” he said. Coodie & Chike did not directly respond to West’s request for approval of the change.
