Kanye West is a force to be reckoned with. The star has been in the game for more than 15 years, though for many it's hard to remember the entertainment industry without him in it. While he's known for his many talents, including his producing and rapping, he's also known for his controversial moments, which many believe may have led to his split from Kim Kardashian, and which have only continued with the release of his much-anticipated album 'Donda.'His career could certainly fill books, and now it's being captured in the form of a documentary. Netflix has delivered the first trailer for its forthcoming Kanye West documentary, titled 'Jeen-Yuhs,' which is scheduled to release in 2022. The two-minute clip shows footage of West and Mos Def from 2002 rapping lyrics that would eventually appear on the track 'Two Words' from West's debut album, 'The College Dropout.' The three-part documentary was reportedly purchased for US$30 million, Hypebeast reports, and is co-directed by Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah, who have been in Ye's inner circle for the past two decades. It's sure to include a never-before-seen side of the controversial star, behind all the headlines of years past. If you want to get to know more about the rapper's ups and downs, as there have certainly been many, click through the following gallery for a look at the rollercoaster that is Kanye West!

Although relations between the pair became strained after the band split, they did manage to repair their friendship prior to Lennon's death in 1980, when he was shot dead in front of his apartment building in New York.

"I'm so glad because it would have been the worst thing in the world to have this great relationship that then soured and he gets killed, so there was some solace in the fact that we got back together. We were good friends," McCartney said in a previous interview with UK talk-show host Jonathan Ross.

Their unbreakable bond was apparent yesterday when McCartney honoured Lennon on Instagram on what would have been the music icon's 81st birthday.
