West, 41, has since been criticised for his support of Donald Trump after saying he and the president shared “dragon energy”.
Announcing West’s appearance on Thursday’s show, Kimmel tweeted: “On Thursday night, HURRICANE KANYE strikes @JimmyKimmelLive! @KanyeWest.”
He last appeared on the show in 2013 following a social media row between himself and Kimmel.
West objected to Kimmel spoofing a BBC interview in which he described himself as “the number one rockstar on the planet”.
The musician and fashion designer’s wife, the reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last month, telling the host West was “almost” a billionaire.
