Kanye West mulled Drake’s narration for ‘Jeen-Yuhs’


Netflix’s documentary Jeen-Yuhs, based on the rise of Kanye West, had appealed to Drake so much that he wanted to narrate it.

Speaking to Samson Shulman’s podcast, the miniseries creators Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah revealed the Canadian rapper floated the idea after watching the documentary’s private teaser.

“When he seen it, he was like, ‘Kanye, ask Coodie if I can narrate,” Simmons added.

The request came amidst the two rapper giants shaking hands to end their then-long-running beef.

Further, Simmons revealed Ye took to social media to take fans’ opinions on the One Dance rapper taking charge of the narration of his story.

But the Grammy winner soon deleted the tweet after fans’ disapproval.

“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,’” adding, “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.”
