Netflix has paid $30 million for a documentary about Kanye West.

According to Billboard, the multi-part series has been in the making for 21 years and will feature never-before-seen footage and home videos of the Yeezy mogul.

The untitled project is the work of Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, also known as Coodie & Chike, who directed two of West’s first music videos, “Through the Wire” and the third iteration of “Jesus Walks.”

The series, which will be available on Netflix later this year, will also reportedly touch on the 2007 death of West’s mother, Donda West, and how it affected Kanye, plus other eventful moments from West’s life including his foray into fashion and 2020 bid for the presidency.

It’s unclear if his recent divorce from Kim Kardashian will be included.
