According to a recent Billboard report, the streaming service purchased the miniseries for “upwards of $30 million,” and it was a smooth agreement between both parties.
Netflix acquired the series from music video producing team Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, who have been documenting the rapper’s movements over the past two decades. The duo, more commonly known as Coodie & Chike, were behind West’s music videos for ‘Jesus Walks (Version 3)’ and ‘Through the Wire’.
