If there were cameras in biblical times, would people believe the true power of God? Would we judge the characters, brush them off and
say that they were delusional and didn’t hear from God? Kayne West’s life is a true testament of what hope, faith and resilience is in the modern world.
Filmmakers Coodie & Chike believe that Jesus Christ has always guided rapper Kanye West despite his sometimes erratic and questionable behavior. They hope their new Netflix documentary “Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye West Trilogy” will inspire others to tap into what God is leading them to do.
Jeen-Yuhs” began streaming on Netflix February 16, 2022, with its first installment of three acts titled “Vision,” “Purpose” and “Awakening,” respectively. The documentary, which has vulgar language, features footage captured by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons over the span of 20 years.
The series documents Kanye’s formative days in Chicago and features his rise to becoming a global entertainer. In recent years, the artist has shared extensively about his conversion to Jesus Christ and even hosted several events called “Sunday Services” nationwide in 2019 at places like Coachella, Los Angeles’ Skid Row and even Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston.
“I’m like a vessel, and God has chosen me to be the voice and the connector.” – Kayne West
Long before he started claiming top spots on Christian music charts with “Jesus Is King,” he was rapping about Jesus. There was “Jesus Walks,” a track on his 2004 debut “The College Dropout” with lyrics such as “God show me the way because the devil’s tryna break me down.” In “jeen-yuhs,” Kanyes music is described as a “cultural phenomenon.”
