The clip showcases Kanye referring to rapper and frequent collaborator Rhymefest as having disrespected him for not acknowledging him as a genius in a prior car ride. Rhymefest then asks, “But who are you to call yourself a genius?” and West just smiles at the camera. At the end of the clip, it’s revealed that a new teaser for the documentary is coming soon.

Check out the new Jeen-Yuhs clip below:

Jeen-Yuhs spans over twenty years and features never-before-seen footage of the musician and fashion icon. The multi-part docuseries is being helmed by Clarence Simmons and Chike Ozah, who directed the third music video for “Jesus Walks” and “Through the Wire.” They previously did the ESPN 30 for 30 documenatry Benji and A Kid From Coney Island that chronicles Stephon Marbury.

In an interview late last year with directors Coodie Simmons and Chike Ozah spoke about the upcoming film, specifically noting that the documentary will cross over three separate generations of Kanye’s life.

“But there’s a whole history lesson that’s happened,” Ozah says of the entire documentary. “We’re crossing generations in three films. At the end of the film, Kanye’s collaborating with artists that were babies. The crazy part is, Kanye’s a through-line. He’s still as relevant at the end as he is in the beginning because his music [has] passed the test of time.”
