Netflix has given viewers a closer look at the Kanye West documentary Jeen-Yuhs in a new trailer. Directed by filmmaker duo Coodie and Chike, the first act of the three-part series is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on February 16.

The preview consists of a montage of footage from Ye’s early years as a rapper in Chicago. Asked how he would describe the album that he’s currently working on, a young Ye calls it “a breath of fresh air.”

“It felt like the bigger Kanye got, the farther we grew apart,” Coodie narrates. “But there was more to Kanye’s story I needed to tell.”

Netflix bills Jeen-Yuhs as an inside look into Ye’s path to becoming the influential rapper and tastemaker he’s known as today:

Twenty-one years ago, Clarence ‘Coodie’ Simmons met Kanye West and saw something so special that he moved from Chicago to New York City to document Ye’s journey to become the next great rapper. Neither of them had any idea where just how far that journey would take them.

On Wednesday, Coodie and Chike said that they were denying Ye’s request for “final edit and approval,” citing their intent to retain creative control over the project.

In other music news, Machine Gun Kelly dropped a new song with Willow Smith “Emo Girl.”
