Kanye West To Appear On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Jimmy Kimmel has always said that he wanted to be in a rap feud and now he is. Kimmel and hip hop star Kanye West have been embroiled in a bitter feud that’s played out over Twitter and the airwaves.

The spat started after Kimmel made fun of Kanye for an interview he gave to the BBC. In it, Kanye called himself the biggest rock star of all, and he ranted that the fashion world isn’t taking him or his products seriously.

That night, Jimmy Kimmel skewered Kanye by having two kids reenact the interview, saying it would make it easier to understand.

Perhaps the two will settle their differences when West appears on Kimmel’s show tonight.
