Kanye West has had a controversial year, to say the least. The producer/rapper has publicly supported Donald Trump, worn the MAGA hat, said controversial statements on slavery and much more just this year alone. Now, it seems these controversial statements and antics have inspired a new BBC documentary that highlights his behavior, while talking to those near him to bring insight. The man behind the documentary, Ben Zand, who also produced R. Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotape, turns his attention to Ye to see where things went left.
The filmmaker manages to catch up with friends of Kanye and his late mother Donda West, although never with the rapper himself. Childhood friend and rapper GLC, manager John Monopoly and political commentator Candace Owens are are some of the people who sit down to discuss Ye’s behavior throughout the years.
The 36-minute film brings a “fresh and revealing portrait of one of the most controversial and influential artists of the 21st century, at a pivotal point in the life of ‘Ye.’”
