Rapper KANYE WEST is to face off with his late-night TV foe after agreeing to appear on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! on Wednesday night (09Oct13).
The two celebrities have been embroiled in a feud since West took aim at Jimmy Kimmel via Twitter.com last month (Sep13), after the comedian poked fun at the Jesus Walks hitmaker for declaring he was the biggest rock star in the world in a recent BBC interview.
Kimmel turned the radio chat between West and presenter Zane Lowe into a comedy skit, during which two kids re-enacted the interview segment. And Kimmel quipped, "Does Kanye West know he's not supposed to be his own hype man?"
The rapper was not amused by the skit and Kimmel's remarks and he attacked the comic on Twitter, which only served to give the TV host more ammunition to throw back at West.
In his show on 26 September (13), he joked, "Did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago? Just me? OK. I didn't know if he was mad at all of us.
"He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week. He gave an interview to the BBC, and we had a kid actor take the words and re-enact it. We just had the kid say the stuff Kanye said. And apparently this upset him."
Kimmel revealed West had urged him to "apologise publicly" and told him his life would be "much better" if he said sorry to the rapper on air.
The comedian refused and simply read aloud some of West's tweets on the show, and responded to them.
He joked, "Finally, I'm in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud."
