Kanye West has made it clear he is the creative director of his own life.
"I’m going to say this kindly for the last time," West warned in the caption along with a black and white close up photo of himself. “I must get final edit and approval on this doc before it releases on Netflix.”
"Open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image," the "Jesus Walks" musician wrote. "Thank you in advance 😊"
According to Deadline, the new documentary film — that is set to premiere at the Sundance film festival — was directed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah. The film chronicles West's life in three acts with never-before-seen footage over the span of 21 years of the Grammy winner's life and career.
Contrary to the fashion designer's claims he deserves final cut on the project, the creative team has previously said otherwise.
Simmons recently told Variety about his creative control with the film: “I needed to tell this story. It’s not about making Kanye likable or not." He continued, "The footage doesn’t lie. What makes the film special is that it’s not something definitive; it’s his journey through my vision.”
