Kanye West's 21 years in the making documentary series coming to Netflix (Report)

The series will reportedly include West's failed 2020 presidential run.

Billboard reports that a new documentary series on Kanye West is set to debut on Netflix this year.

The series is apparently based on never-before-seen footage from as far back as 2000, filmed by music video-creating duo Clarence 'Coodie' Simmons and Chike Ozah, who have previously worked with West on the music videos for his singles 'Jesus Walks' and 'Through The Wire'.

Billboard's initial report claimed that Netflix paid $30 million for the series, although a source has told Variety that this figure is inaccurate.

According to both reports, the series will cover West's career in music and fashion, the death of his mother Donda West in 2007, and West's failed 2020 presidential run.

Neither report could confirm or deny whether the series would also cover West's recent split with Kim Kardashian; a topic that will be covered during the final series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which is airing currently.

West's documentary series will follow in the footsteps of some other very recent high profile musician documentaries, including those on Taylor Swift, Tina Turner, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes.

Netflix have yet to officially release a statement on the Kanye West documentary series.
