Kanye West would be upset by the upcoming BBC special on him because he is known for being bossy, but the program would not let the rapper get in the way.
We Need to Talk About Kanye is a two-part documentary with the title We Need to Talk About Kanye. The hit from The Life of Pablo singer Kanye West did not have any editorial power over the film.
The documentary will air later this year on BBC Two. It will be about how the father-of-four’s actions when he was running for office caused a lot of anger.
Mobeen Azhar, an investigative journalist, will be in charge of the show. He will look into the West phenomenon. Even though West is one of the biggest pop stars of his age, many people still don’t like him because of his many scandals.
Also, director Jeremy Lee says a new eight-part podcast series will break Ye’s mind even more.
Lee told Variety that viewers would get “unique access to members of Ye’s inner circle” in the documentary but that famed control freak Kanye West would have “no editorial control” over the finished film.
Adding to his explanation of why the project was made, he said, “Ye’s recent actions have led to both criticism and a re-evaluation of his place in popular culture.
Using current events as a starting point, the documentary and the eight-part podcast series that goes along with it look at Ye’s 20 years in the public eye amid rumors of a YE2024 election campaign.
Lee also said, “It will be underpinned with world-class journalism and unique access to Ye’s inner circle members. This is a revelation-driven film which sheds new light on recent events. Ye is aware of but has no editorial control over the documentary.”
