Kanye West to Return to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'
Kanye West is coming back to “Kimmel.”

“On Thursday night, HURRICANE KANYE strikes @JimmyKimmelLive! @KanyeWest,” tweeted Kimmel.

Kanye last appeared on “Kimmel” in 2013 following a highly-publicized feud between the rapper and talk show host.
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.
