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 profanity-filled Twitter messages that labeled the comedian out of line and unfunny.

"YOU CAN'T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???" West fumed via Twitter. 

Discussing the incident on his show last month, a smiling Kimmel said he always wanted to be in a rap feud. Kimmel is known for his elaborate pranks, but the talk show host insisted that the Kanye war wasn't just one of his carefully crafted skits. 

"This is not a prank, I promise (unless it's being played on me)," Kimmel tweeted.
