The Apple company will exclusively release a documentary about rapper Wiz Khalifa’s career at Apple Music. The launch will take place on Wednesday, April 17, and the series will include five episodes revealing “the most intimate aspects” of Wiz’s life, through archival footage and several interviews with friends and family.
According to Variety, the series will premiere during Khalifa’s two presentations in Coachella, which will take place this weekend and the weekend of April 19. The project’s executive producer, Michael Strahan, said the team is excited to work with Apple Music on the series to have the opportunity to “give the world an intimate look at the emergence of an entertainment icon.
As you can see from the trailer published in the U.S. media, this installment has a different focus than most music documentaries, showing images of Wiz’s adolescence, as well as testimonies from his mother and lifelong companions, who talk about his early dedication to the world of music. The documentary even shows those moments when the artist plays for very few people, but the trailer ends up with him playing the same song later in his career for thousands of people.
Music documentaries continue at Apple Music
Although Cupertino’s firm has made it clear that it is focused on advancing its Apple TV+ services, it appears that documentaries related to music and behind-the-scenes movies will continue to be published on Apple Music.
However, Apple eliminated the TV and Movies section in Apple Music in a recent iOS update, which introduced its revamped design to allow quick navigation through the cured music playlists. In the category ‘Browse’ it is still possible to find music documentaries, but also when entering the profile of the artist of our interest, we will find the content of series or videos that are available in Apple Music.
