Kanye West is gearing up to give fans a glimpse inside his life with a new documentary entitled "Jeen Yuhs".

The upcoming Netflix doc, which the streaming service revealed during it's Tundum fan event over the weekend, will follow Kanye's life over the course of 21 years and feature intimate, archival footage of the rapper during his music journey in the last two decades. The three-act chronicle -- co-directed by Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah -- will also reportedly touch on Kanye's 2020 presidential run, the death of his mother, Donda West, as well as his transition from global rap star to fashion mogul.

No word on Kanye's involvement in the documentary process, however, the "Jail" rapper reportedly gave Coodie and Chike permission to film him over the years and gather footage for the project. The directing duo are no strangers to working alongside the rap star. Both Coodie and Chike previously worked with Ye' on his critically acclaimed 2004 music videos for “Jesus Walks (Version 3)” and “Through the Wire.”

The news of a Kanye West Netflix documentary comes just weeks after the Yeezy designer made history with his tenth studio album DONDA, named after his late mother. DONDA debuted at number one on several charts, including the U.S. Billboard 200 where it became Kanye's tenth consecutive number-one album. The project also made history as one of the biggest opening-day streaming tallies in the history of Apple Music and Spotify.

"Jeen-Yuhs", the three-part documentary is scheduled to drop on Netflix in 2022. Check out the trailer below:
