Kanye West’s Life Explored in New Documentary
A new, unauthorized Kanye West film from YouTuber True Geordie documents the Chicago artist's early days in music, as well as the controversial antics of modern day Yeezy.
The documentary is actually episode two of True Geordie's True Life Stories and starts off in 'Ye's early days in Chicago, linking up with No I.D. and making a name for himself. The film also touches on Kanye's well-known struggles of being taking seriously as a rapper and finding it difficult to sign with a label.
While not known for tackling hip-hop in his YouTube videos, True Geordie has made a name for himself on the website with his popular soccer videos. The English YouTuber is known for uploading rants about the Newcastle United soccer team, as well as previews of upcoming matches.
In related Kanye West news, the "Yikes" rapper has earned his eighth No. 1 album after Ye reached the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart. The project moved 208,000 equivalent album units for the week ending on June 7, with 85,000 of those units coming from traditional album sales.
Ye also found success on streaming services, dominating the charts during its first few days of release. On Spotify and Apple Music, all seven songs on the album held the top seven spots on the songs charts. The record also became the No. 1 album in 83 countries on Apple Music.
