“Act 1” of the three-part series arrives Feb. 16, and the two-minute preview covers much of the ground that will feature in the debut episode, namely West’s gradual ascent from eager Chicago beatmaker to a bonafide rapper in his own right. The trailer also hints at the stardom that was soon to follow, as well as West’s own belief that his career was preordained by God.
However, soon after, West seemingly forgot about the request, as Coodie told Rolling Stone. “I asked him, ‘Did he watch the film?’ And he said, ‘I have a process,’” Coodie said. “I said, ‘That’s great that you got your process.’ And we just talked as brothers from that point.”
