LOS ANGELES (AP) — ABC says Kanye West is appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show, less than two weeks after the pair got into what Kimmel called a “rap feud.”

The musician will be a guest Wednesday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the network said Tuesday.

In late September, Kimmel’s show aired a skit that mocked a West radio interview by having a child re-create it. West responded with an irate phone call to Kimmel and a series of Twitter messages that labeled the comedian out of line and unfunny.

Discussing the incident on his show last month, a smiling Kimmel said he always wanted to be in a rap feud. The talk show host is known for his parodies and pranks, including a recent staged twerking accident video that became an online sensation.
