Drake was so interested in Jeen-Yuhs, a Netflix documentary about Kanye West’s rise to fame, that he wanted to be the voice of it.
Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah, who made the miniseries, talked about it on Samson Shulman’s show. They said that the Canadian rapper came up with the idea after seeing the private teaser for the documentary.
Simmons said, “When he seen it, he was like, ‘Kanye, ask Coodie if I can narrate.”
The request came as the two big rappers were shaking hands to end a fight that had been going on for a long time.
Simmons also said that Ye went on social media to ask fans what they thought about the One Dance rapper being in charge of how his story is told.
The 45-year-old asked the question with a picture of Drake’s conversation: “Should I let DRAKE narrate my documentary?????.”
But after friends said they didn’t like it, the Grammy winner quickly deleted the tweet.
“Then, when we did the premiere and Kanye seen the piece, he was like, ‘Man, I can’t believe Drake thought he could narrate this movie.’ And Drake thought he could do it in a week… You know how long it took and how much writing it took to get to that point? He’s great, Kanye’s great, but we great too.”
