As Yeezy Season 3 and ‘The Life of Pablo’ are just hours away from its arrival, the hype surrounding Kanye West is reaching critical mass. Much has been made of Mr. West as an artist, designer and a human being as of late, and a new documentary titled Dissertation by visual artists Armani Ortiz and Dan Buyanovsky compiles some of the stories, opinions and soundbites that journalists and industry insiders have gathered in the man’s decade-long career. The talking heads include editors of The New York Times, Complex, Pitchfork, The Fader, and others.

The sixteen-minute documentary is available to stream now and serves as a perfect primer for the many conversations you’re bound to have about Ye’s new album.
