The U.K.’s Channel 4 has a new documentary called Public Enemies about the current Kanye West vs. JAY-Z feud. The in-depth of a dissection of a rap conflict features interviews with experts and associates from every part of Jigga and Ye’s lives, and it’s a must watch.
Not just a sensationalist cash-in to broadcast social media footage on television, Public Enemies excels by showing just how different Jay and Ye truly are. From the differences in their upbringing through their journeys and their approach to music and the parallels that spawned their friendship, the documentary lays it all out on the table.
Along the way, we get insight into their childhoods (Jay’s 6th grade teacher was tracked down) and Kanye’s admiration of Jigga, making the climactic meltdown all the more impactful. The whole documentary is available to watch now, and we can’t recommend it enough.
