The rapper's last appearance took place in 2013 when he & Kimmel famously squashed their "beef."

Kanye West will make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday. 

Host Jimmy Kimmel made the announcement on Twitter. West's last appearance on Kimmel came in 2013, in what was billed as an attempt to defuse a simmering social media feud between the two stars.

The feud began when West took exception to a Kimmel sketch spoofing the rapper's infamous BBC interview in which he made various outlandish claims and described himself as “the No. 1 rock star on the planet.”

After the sketch aired, West called Kimmel a “manipulative media motherf---er” and created the hashtag #AllDisrespectToJimmyKimmel.

Kimmel amped up the feud in followup monologues and said he “always wanted to be in a rap feud.” The 'beef' ended when West appeared as a guest on the show. 

West's appearance on Thursday is followed by an appearance by his wife Kim Kardashian West on Friday.
