Lasting roughly a minute, the teaser begins with a vintage clip of  Ye chilling in New York with hip hop artist Rhymefest, where the latter asks why West should call himself a genius. Like a visual prophecy, the rest of the short montage then proceeds to show short snippets of the artist in the studio with Jay-Z and Pharrell, performances on stage and the iconic moment of Kid Cudi at his Yeezy Season / The Life of Pablo listening party.

However, the trailer also touches on his life-altering 2002 car accident, where the rapper required reconstructive surgery on his face. Likely referring to the humbling experience, Kanye narrates over of the back half of the video: “It was like God saying, ‘I’m about to hand you the world, just know at any given time I could take it away from you.'”

JEEN-YUHS is scheduled to release exclusively on Netflix on February 16.
