KANYE West was shown in his new Netflix documentary bragging about how he is a “genius” in a 20-year-old video.
The documentary has debuted on Netflix amid the rapper’s ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian.
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage, unfollowed Ye on Instagram after the rapper slammed Pete Davidson yet again on the social media platform.
Kim unfollowed her ex just days before the anniversary of the split.
Meanwhile, Kanye thanked his “real friends” in a caption on Instagram, throwing shade towards the Kardashian family and his ex Kim.
“This person has never lied to me and is the least industry person I know,” Kanye wrote.
The photo shows Patrick Reynolds, known more widely as Plain Pat, who managed Kanye early in his music career.
“If you can count your real friends on one hand I only have 4 fingers left,” the rapper concluded.
Part one of Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy debuted on February 16.

Kanye West fans furious over Donda 2 news, part three
While sharing another photo on Instagram that showed Donda 2 was trending on Twitter, the rapper explained: “Go to stemplayer.com to be a part of the revolution I feel that same feeling like when I first moved to New York to make it in Music.
“I ain’t know what was gonna happen but I knew had to move. After 10 albums after being under 10 contracts. I turned down a hundred million dollar Apple deal. No one can pay me to be disrespected. We set our own price for our art.
“Tech companies made music practically free so if you don’t do merch sneakers and tours you don’t eat. Jay Z made Tidal and fake media attacked him.
“Well in the words of my big brother. Come and get me. I’m willing to die standing cause I ain’t living on my knees no more.”
Kanye continued: “God please cover me. I run this company 100% I don’t have to ask for permission. This is our 2nd generation stemplayer We have more things we working on. I feel like how I felt in the first episode of the documentary.”
Kanye West fans furious over Donda 2 news, continued
Shortly after he shared the post, Kanye’s fans rushed to the comments section to slam the rapper for not making the album available everywhere.
One person wrote: “Nah that’s bulls**t.”
Another insisted: “I’M NOT BUYING THAT.”
A third Instagram user chimed in: “bro what is ur problem?”
The backlash continued as another upset fan commented: “Still not buying one ye I’m sorry can’t justify spending $200 for 1 album.”
Kanye West fans furious over Donda 2 news
Kanye West fans were left furious after the rapper revealed Donda 2 will only be available on the $200 Stem player.
Fans of the 44-year-old rapper didn’t hold back when complaining that the upcoming album won’t be available on other platforms.
Kanye took to Instagram on Thursday night to reveal that Donda 2 will only be available on Stem.
Alongside a video of flashing purple and blue lights that featured Kanye rapping, he wrote: “Donda 2 will only be streaming on my own platform, the stem player.
“You can download new music from stemplayer.com. You can play 4 different elements of the track: vocals, drums, bass and music.
“It also has a MP3 player available. We currently have 67,000 available and are making 3,000 a day. Go click the link in my bio to purchase.”
Kimye’s kids: Psalm West
Psalm is Kim and Kanye’s youngest child.
Born on May 10, 2019, he is two years old.
Kim Kardashian said in February 2020 that she believes Psalm is the reincarnation of her father, Rob Kardashian Sr.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians actress, whose father died in 2003, confessed she learned about the concept while on vacation in Indonesia.
“We were in Bali, and a woman – a blind medium – came up to me and said that I was going to have another son and that it was going to be my father reincarnated,” she told E! News.
Kimye’s kids: Chicago West
Chicago was born on January 15, 2018, and she just turned four years old.
After physicians advised Kim, 37, that carrying a third child would be risky, she and Kanye chose to use a surrogate.
Chicago was born in early 2018 weighing 7lbs 6oz and was conceived with Kim’s egg and Kanye’s sperm.
The name Chicago is an homage to Kanye’s late mother, as it was her hometown.
Kimye’s kids: Saint West
Saint is six years old, having been born on December 5, 2015.
Kim has been candid about the difficulty of her pregnancies.
She developed hypertension during her first pregnancy, forcing her to deliver at 34 weeks.
She also had placenta accreta after giving birth.
After Kim’s difficult pregnancy, they chose the name Saint as a “blessing.”
Kimye’s kids: North West
Kim and Kanye’s eldest child is North. She is eight years old, and was born on June 15, 2013.
She is frequently photographed with her mother and is already regarded as a fashion icon.
When North was four years old, she gave her first interview with her mother.
Kim and North were featured on the cover of Interview Magazine, and the children of other celebrities were given the opportunity to interview North.
Did Kim and Kanye use surrogacy?
Kim and Kanye turned to surrogacy to aid them with carrying Chicago and Psalm.
Kim said that she had toxemia, which prevents her from having any more children.
The reality star was told on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that if she becomes pregnant a third time, she may “bleed to death.”
Kanye’s tumultuous relationship with Kris
Kanye also hasn’t exactly seen eye-to-eye with Kris, 66, in the past as back in the summer of 2020 he labeled the momager as “Kris Jong-un” on Twitter and even accused her of “white supremacy” during one of his now infamous rants.
All seemed to be worked out, however, when Kanye, Kris, and Corey, 40, were spotted heading to Saturday Night Live in October 2021 to see Kim Kardashian host the famous sketch comedy show.
Kanye claims Kris Jenner’s boyfriend ‘cheated’
Kanye West posted and then deleted a head-turning claim that Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble “cheated” with a woman at a nightclub.
On Instagram, posted a screenshot from an unconfirmed video of a man he alleged to be Corey kissing another woman at a Miami nightclub.
“We outside DONDA 2 2 22 22,” he simply captioned it referring to his live performance scheduled to take place in Miami in the last week of the month.
However, as with most of Kanye’s latest posts, he quickly deleted the screenshot from his platform.
Who will appear on The Kardashians?
Given that Kim, Kourtney, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner, as well as mother Kris Jenner, were all included in the teaser pictures announcing the new series, it’s reasonable to presume they’ll all appear on The Kardashians.
Some fans were concerned about the return of Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick, but Kim put minds at ease with a tweet.
Kardashians secretive about new show
While there is very little known about the new reality series, the Kardashian-Jenners have dropped a few indications about what to anticipate from the upcoming program.
Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Khloe Kardashian walked to the stage to accept an award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards on December 7, divulging details about their future Hulu series in the process.
In their speech for their Best Reality Show of 2021 win at the PCAs, Kris said: “We’ve closed this one chapter but a new one is coming. We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you coming in 2022 on Hulu, so get ready.”
The series is set to premiere on April 14.
Kim is ‘finding it overwhelming’
Kim Kardashian, who is currently in New York with her new beau, Pete Davidson, didn’t appreciate her ex’s romantic gesture of sending her a truck full of roses, says a friend.
“I think she’s finding it overwhelming – the truck he tried to send to her house had bunches of roses but also rose bushes that Kanye had instructed to be planted in the private garden outside her bedroom window, so she would see them everyday. That’s not normal.”
“She can’t text him, because she thinks he will just make it public so she sent a messenger to speak to him in person saying he needs to stop with the public stunts before she will even consider talking to him.”
“She’s worried he’ll show up at the house again,” the friend said.
“She made it clear there will be no discussion while he’s acting this way. Her intention is to tell him there is no chance to get back together and to get him to accept that.”
Kanye has since deleted most of his Instagram posts. Kim’s rep has been contacted for comment.
When did Kim file for divorce?
The reality star filed for divorce from Kanye, 44, back in February 2021.
While Kim has moved on, she says that Kanye makes it “impossible” to have a pleasant co-parenting relationship.
Kim has answered back to Kanye’s criticism with a statement that reads in part: “From the beginning, I have wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship because it is what is best for our children.
“And it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way…”
Aside from North, the exes share Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, two.
Kim Kardashian begs Kanye West ‘leave me alone’
Kim Kardashian’s friends claim she sent a team member to speak to her ex Kanye West, and “beg him to leave her alone,” The Sun exclusively revealed.
The reality star is “worried Kanye will post more of her private texts” and sent a member of her team to talk to her ex in person.
The insider said: “Kim is really upset about Kanye’s social media rants and how he’s posting everything she sends him.”
“Kim has tried to ignore Kanye’s latest attacks, but it’s impossible. After his stunt with the Valentine’s Day roses, she reached out begging him to stop, saying ‘if he loves her as he says, why is he acting like this and causing her pain’?”
What’s the Jeen-Yuhs premiere schedule?
Jeen-Yuhs is “A Kanye Trilogy” to be released in three acts.
The first chapter (also known as Act I) focuses on Kanye West before he became a star.
The following two episodes (known as Act II and Act III) will go through other moments in West’s career, including his 2002 car crash and his support for Donald Trump.
The premiere dates for the acts are as follows:
- Jeen-yuhs episode 1 (Act 1: Vision): Feb. 16, 2022
- Jeen-yuhs episode 2 (Act II: Purpose): Feb. 23, 2022
- Jeen-yuhs episode 3 (Act III: Awakening): March 2, 2022
What is Pete Davidson’s net worth?
Davidson’s has an estimated $8million net worth, Celebrity Net Worth reported.
As a main cast member on SNL, who has been on the show since 2014, Davidson earns around $15K per episode.
He’s remained in the spotlight for most of his career, and has dated many high status women.
Davidson was most recently linked to fashion mogul Kim Kardashian.
In 2018, Davidson was briefly engaged to international pop star, actress, and television personality, Ariana Grande.
Does Jay-Z appear in Jeen-Yuhs?
Kanye’s new documentary, Jeen-Yuhs, includes interviews with Kanye and Jay-Z, a fellow artist and frequent collaborator.
West was previously believed to have requested rapper Drake to narrate the documentary, but this does not appear to be the case.
Coodie and Chike, the documentary’s directors, collaborated on the project.
They’re most known for a documentary called Benji, which was released in 2012 and chronicled the terrible demise of a high school basketball player.
They’ve also directed the West music video Through the Wire, which was the rapper’s first single.
Kim wants to end marriage ‘as quickly as possible’
According to Hollywood Life, Kim Kardashian is “not at all happy with” Kanye West’s objection to her request of becoming legally single.
“She wants to dissolve this marriage as quickly as possible,” a source told Hollywood Life.
Despite being unhappy with the turn of events so far, the source told Hollywood Life that Kim “isn’t all that surprised that Kanye denied her request.
“[Kanye’s] made every step of this process as difficult for her as possible, and clearly, he has every intention of continuing to do so.
“Kim needs Kanye to quit it and move on with his life. All that she cares about at this point is that he be a father to their kids.”
Kanye criticizes streaming services, continued
He continued, writing: “Some say I’m the only one who can make this change. So as the leading innovator in music of the past 20 years. I’m putting my own work on the line to change it.
“I’ve already won by not being afraid to move. Now we’re winning because there are true supporters that have invested their hard earned money in my vision of freedom.”
Kanye criticizes streaming services
Kanye West said that in the 24 hours since announcing that Donda 2 will only be accessible to stream on his Stem Player, he had sold over 6,200 units, worth $1.3million.
Along with disclosing the sales figures, he also slammed streaming platforms, explaining why his forthcoming album won’t be accessible there when it drops on February 22, 2022 (2/22/22).
The Stem Player sales data, which include $8.6million in total purchases since the $200 gadget was debuted in August 2021 for Donda, were shared on Instagram.
He wrote: “I walked away from Apple right after having the most number 1’s in Apple history. Song Writers have been really hurt by streaming platforms.”
Kanye comments on Times Square Balenciaga billboard
The 44-year-old rapper took a snapshot of billboards in Manhattan’s Times Square displaying estranged wife Kim Kardashian in various Balenciaga ensembles, but he deleted it an hour later.
The Skims entrepreneur is shown wearing a black leather trench, black boots with features from the brand’s classic Motorcycle bag, and a neon green Le Cagole purse in size XS.
Kim’s landmark house in Calabasas, which she formerly shared with Kanye and their four children, was the setting for the ad, which was shot by Stef Mitchell.
Before removing the post from the platform, Kanye wrote: “This Balenciaga campaign premiered in Time[s] Square today. I know ya’ll can understand that this is bitter sweet for me. This is awesome. All positive energy.”
Kanye feud with Kid Cudi
Aside from bashing Pete left and right, Kanye also called out one of his collaborators, and fellow rapper, Cudi.
In fact, Kanye even dropped Cudi, 38, from his upcoming Donda 2 album because he’s “friends with Pete.”
The Pursuit of Happiness artist was not too pleased with Kanye’s announcement as he jumped in the comments section and said: “Too bad I don’t wanna be on your album you f**king dinosaur.
Cudi added: “Everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about your albums since I met you.”
He was not done with his rant as Cudi took to Twitter and wrote: “You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet…”
This feud is still quite fresh with no resolution in sight.
Kanye feud with Drake
Another one of Kanye’s notable feuds involved Drake, which kicked off after the dad of four produced a Pusha T song that slammed the Degrassi alum.
Drake, 35, would eventually send both artists a $100K invoice for “career reviving” after the song’s release.
Kanye and Drake would be quite icy to one another for quite some time, however, it seems they have buried the hatchet as back in November 2021 they posed for a photo together.
Kanye feud with Ray J
Kanye’s baby mama Kim, 41, infamously appeared in a sex tape with Ray J, so this feud should come as no surprise.
The Donda rapper has called out Ray J in numerous songs including his 2016 track Highlights.
He rapped at the time: “I bet me and Ray J would be friends if we didn’t like the same b**ch/ Yeah, he might have hit it first, only problem is I’m rich.”
Recently, Kanye claimed he flew to meet Ray J and obtain the laptop which contained an alleged second sex tape featuring Kim.
Ray J, 41, would go on to seemingly shut down the speculation of a tape, tweeting: “This needs to stop. I also have kids.”
