Kanye West has been a lot of things to a lot of people in his multifaceted career - and he's teaming up with Netflix to tell all those parts of his story.

Billboard reported April 6 that the rapper/producer/fashion designer/presidential candidate will partner with the streaming service for a documentary series slated to air later in 2021. The show will reportedly cover every phase of his career and the various controversies he courted, with the help of an unprecedented collection of home video and unseen archive footage stretching back 20 years.

The project will be directed by the team of Coodie & Chike, who directed videos to "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks," from West's breakthrough debut album The College Dropout. A release date has yet to be confirmed.
