"I said, 'Dude, you have to trust me.' And he did, 100%," Simmons said. "Mind you, when his team and the business-people have gotten involved, they're of course going to have their say. But I needed to tell this story. It's not about making Kanye likable or not. The footage doesn't lie. What makes the film special is that it's not something definitive; it's his journey through my vision."

Jeen-Yuhs is a three-part documentary filmed over more than 20 years of West's career. The film will show West making his way as a singer and businessman, and it will also take a look at his failed 2020 presidential bid and the death of his mother, Donda West, in 2007.

In the official trailer for the documentary that dropped earlier this month, West can be seen in New York in 2002, two years before the release of his debut albumThe College Dropout.

"Me and Fest got into an argument in the car," West says in the clip of rapper Rhymefest. "I feel like he disrespected me, man. Tried to say I wasn't a genius yet."

As he smiles to the camera, Rhymefest chimes in to ask, "Well, who are you to call yourself a genius?"

West smiles at the camera once more and the teaser continues, showing the rapper in the studio with stars including Jay Z, performing before large crowds and laughing with his late mother.

"It's always like God saying, 'I'm about to hand you the world. Just know that at any given time, I could take it away from you,'" a voiceover says.
