An upcoming documentary by the BBC on the life and times of the ever-controversial Kanye West will uncover “revelations”, according to its producer. We Need To Talk About Kanye has been bought by media outlets in several countries after the BBC originally made it back in February.
Producer Jeremy Lee told of the uniqueness of the documentary. He said (via Hip Hop DX), “Underpinned with world-class journalism and unique access to members of Ye’s inner circle, this is a revelation-driven film which sheds new light on recent events.”
“Ye’s recent behaviour has prompted both condemnation and a re-evaluation of his place in popular culture,” Lee added. “With recent events as a starting point, the documentary and accompanying eight-part podcast series explore Ye’s two decades in the public eye amid a rumoured YE2024 election campaign.”
The documentary will focus, then, on Ye’s recent media frenzy in which he made antisemitic comments. The Chicago-born rapper suffered a heavy financial loss and the end of a number of business collaborations, including Adidas, Def Jam, Balenciaga and Gap.
Kanye recently stated, “Right now, I am living my life — like I’m concentrating on the school, The Donda Academy, and my new wife, and my kids, and that’s it. I just want to be left alone.”
