Hip-hop superstar Kanye West is set to appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show on Thursday night (Aug. 9), the talk show host announced on Twitter.
“On Thursday night, HURRICANE KANYE strikes @JimmyKimmelLive! @KanyeWest,” tweeted Kimmel.
The beef started after West took offense to a “Kimmel” sketch spoofing his infamous interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 in which ‘Ye declared himself the “No. 1 rock star on the planet.”
Following the parody, West took to Twitter to call Kimmel a “manipulative media motherfu**er” and created the hashtag #AllDisrespectToJimmyKimmel.
Kimmel, who received an angry phone call from Kanye, fueled the beef during episodes of his show. “I always wanted to be in a rap feud,” he said. The two eventually called a truce when West appeared as a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in October 2013.
West’s appearance follows his wife Kim Kardashian West, who appeared on last week’s show.
