“Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Triology” is a docuseries on Netflix about *dun dun dun* KANYE WEST. But not the “ran for president and married to the Kardashian clan” Kayne, the young producer, aspiring rapper, Donda’s son Kanye. The three-part docuseries pieces together 21 years of footages and memories directed by Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah. So far, I have to say its heartbreaking. The scenes they showed with his mother, made me realize how blessed and grateful I am to have my mother still here with me. She was his backbone. He was dealing with multiple rejections, labels not taking him serious as a rapper, and people he thought were his friends, turning against him. After the one-sided beef with “Dug Who Gives AF”, you can see the hurt in his face and voice.
But Donda West was there. Following his radio interview, he visited her, and their conversation shows that she’s the reason why he was who he was. “You’ve got a lot of confidence and you come off a little arrogant even though you’re humble … but it’d be important to remember to stand on the ground, that way you can be in the air at the same time … that’s what I think it means when they say a giant may look in the mirror and see nothing, but everyone else sees the giant.” She lifted his spirits while keeping him grounded. I can’t wait to see the next part “Act II: Awakening” which premieres Feb. 23. I really missed the old Kanye.
