kanye west documentary

Kanye West is sure to claim the summer — hell, the whole year — as his own with his forthcoming sixth solo album, but it’s always nice to look back on the career of one of music’s biggest personalities. In this new fan-made documentary entitled Where The Lonely Kids Go When The Bell Rings, filmmaker James Workman takes us on a trip down memory lane through Kanye’s inevitable, yet often tumultuous, journey to the top.

Compiling live performances, interviews and other rare footage, the film chronicles his College Dropout days to the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy masterpiece, and everything in between. Here’s your next 45 minutes sorted.
