In November 2018, just after he released his tremendous FM! project, rapper and Twitter comedy genius Vince Staples appeared at ComplexCon in his native Long Beach. At the panel, he announced he had already completed four more albums, the first of which was supposedly coming in January 2019. That did not happen. In fact, we have posted about Staples about 30 times since then, and although some of them contain new music from the man, none contain any substantial information about a new album. Even after he signed to the Capitol/Motown subsidiary Blacksmith Records in August of 2019 with the promise of new music soon, only a few scattered tracks have emerged, some of which seemed more like jokes than a continuation of the catalog that brought us classics like Summertime ’06 and Big Fish Theory.

Back in 2003, Kanye West released the video for his debut single “Through The Wire,” directed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, the directorial team known as Coodie & Chike. That same year the duo directed a clip for Kanye’s College Dropout track “Two Words.” When Kanye was unsatisfied with the first two videos for “Jesus Walks,” he recruited Coodie & Chike to direct a third. Simmons, a fellow Chicago native, has been filming Kanye for many years — as early as 1998, as this footage attests — and by about 2002 he was reportedly doing so with the intention of making a documentary about his life and career. Now, several monumentally eventful decades later, it looks like his and Ozah’s film is finally coming out at far longer than standard movie length.
