Big thank you to Source Award and NAACP Image Award winning, film directing, producing, and screenwriting duo Coodie & Chike for coming on my show for an interview! Coodie & Chike discussed the success and reception of their Jeen-Yuhs Kanye West Netflix documentary. They got into earning Kanye's trust in order to release this documentary, starting to document his story when Hoop Dreams released, and putting his Through the Wire music video together. Coodie talked about attending Northern Illinois University for one semester, getting into media business through his sister Tonia, and creating Channel Zero in Chicago. Chike talked about majoring in motion graphics at Savannah College of Art and Design, wanting to make music videos from the beginning, and meeting both Kanye & Coodie while he was working for MTV. They spoke about creating their own production company Creative Control, creating the ESPN 30 for 30 Benji documentary, and putting together Stephon Marbury's documentary A Kid From Coney Island. Coodie & Chike also spoke about Donda West, their friendship with Kanye, and their next documentary covering the legendary painter Ernie Barnes. Stay tuned for all of the exciting things that they are working on for the near future!
