Former Roc-A-Fella Records A&R Wayno says that Kanye West’s jeen-yuhs documentary was littered with inaccuracies. Wayno explained his issues with the documentary during a recent interview on Homegrown Radio. Wayno discussed a scene during which Ye plays “All Falls Down” to several disinterested individuals at the Roc-A-Fella offices.
“It was not like that bro, because first of all, when I came around — I’m talking about being really, really, inside of Roc-A-Falla  — Kanye was already producing. When I had met him, he had just got a tattoo of all the songs he produced on his arm,” he began

Wayno further recalled: “I walked up to him like ‘Yo you Kanye?’ and he like ‘Yeah, I rap too,’ — he rapped for me. And, he just rapped for like eight minutes. He would do the same routine for everyone he met. The video that they show of him coming to the office and doing that. That wasn’t the first time he did that. In 2002, walking into somewhere with a camera is like a big thing.”
“Now, Chaka Pilgrim was the head of marketing at Roc-A-Fella — to this day she still work with Jay, Beyoncé, all of them. He bust in her office with all the cameras out. He ain’t tell nobody he about to do this or nothing. Bro, mind you it’s not the first time we heard ‘All Falls Down.’ We been heard ‘All Falls Down.’ He walks out like ‘yeah they ain’t feeling me,’” he added. “That’s not real.”
Netflix released jeen-yuhs back in early January 2022, on Netflix. It chronicles the early career and rise of Kanye West throughout the 2000s. After its release, Wayno initially criticized it in a post on social media. “How many times can you have a crazy reaction to something you’ve heard 10x it was kind of annoying at that point,” he wrote at the time.
