Kanye West has said that he wants Drake to narrate his upcoming Netflix documentary, Jeen-Yuhs.
The documentary is scheduled to land on the streaming giant on February 16th, and despite it not being directed by Ye, he’s trying to have a say on the creative direction of the project.
He previously told his followers on Instagram, “I’m going to say this kindly for the last time. I must get [the] 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 streamer previously said the film, which Clarence ‘Coodie’ Simmons and Chike Ozah created, showcases “both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist”.
Due to Kanye’s immense popularity, Netflix paid a staggering $30 million agreement with the creative team to secure the rights to the three-part documentary.
Discussing the film, the directors claimed that their subject is “50 per cent more influential than Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso and Apostle Paul.”
Now, Ye has taken to social media to share a screenshot of a text conversation with an unnamed friend seemingly about Jeen-Yuhs, with West stating, “I need Drake to do the narration.”
In the caption to the upload, Ye reiterated his point and added: “DRAKE WANNA NARRATE THE DOCUMENTARY.” Before the rapper swiftly deleted it, the post was liked by Drizzy.
