The 41-year-old rapper still didn’t tape the episode and it’s slate to be aired at 11:35 p.m. ET, however E! News has a sneak look at the Hip Hop Edition of Mean Tweets, featuring Lil Wayne, Logic and Ty Dolla $ign.
Kimmel took to Twitter to announce that “Hurricane Kanye” is hitting the show today.
Kim Kardashian actually read one of Ye’s mean tweets on birthday-themed last winter: “JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES…OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P—Y IN YOUR LIFE.”
In February 2018, Kimmel revealed that he was hype AF to have a former Twitter beef with Yeezy. “I live for moments like that. When I got in a Twitter battle with Kanye, I was so happy. My wife [co-head writer Molly McNearney] makes fun of me. She’s like, ‘You are so happy right now.’ I’m absolutely beaming,” Kimmel admitted to GQ. “I feel very confident in a situation like that.”
When he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2013, West stated, “Jimmy does his thing, I do my thing, and at some point, egos can flare up, and we kind of took it back to high school.” Kimmel thanked West for appearing on the show, to which West replied, “Thank you for the platform.”
The full Mean Tweets segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live! will air live at 11:35 on ABC!
