Rap feuding on the small screen

Jimmy Kimmel is a brave man. He invited Kanye West on his show just weeks after some threatening tweets by the rapper.

Rap feuding on the small screen

After the feud between Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West, it would be easy to guess the two would go out of their way to never be seen in the same room ever again. But it looks like they may be kissing and making up. ABC announced West will be appearing on Kimmel's show Wednesday night.

The battle started when Kimmel mocked West's interview in which he called himself the biggest rock star in the world, saying, "Does Kanye West know he's not supposed to be his own hype man?"

That was apparently enough to cause West to flip out, and he began a Twitter rant against the host. Kimmel assured his fans the feud was not made up like his fake viral video he admitted he created last month.

"He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week," Kimmel explained to his audience during West's temper tantrum. "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."

But things got worse when West said the ball was in Kimmel's court, and told him he could either "apologize publicly" or, well... nothing.

"And that was really the only choice — the other choice he gave was 'my life... your life is going to be much better if I apologize,' and then he started tweeting today," Kimmel said at the time. "And I don't even know if I've seen some of these because they're happening as we speak."

But Kimmel took it in good nature, saying, "Finally, I'm in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud."

The feud may soon be ending, though, after West appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night. It's hard to imagine why West agreed to the meeting, or which direction the interview will go in.
