(CNN) —  

Love him or hate him, Kanye West will always be himself – especially when he’s burying the hatchet with Jimmy Kimmel.

The 36-year-old Grammy winner appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday to discuss the feud the two got into a few weeks ago.

Kanye West and Twitter: A brief history

It all started with Kimmel’s parody of West’s recent interview with BBC Radio 1, during which he spoke at length about feeling artistically boxed in and the status of hip-hop as the new rock n’ roll. (That’s where West’s now legendary quote, “I’m the No. 1 rock star on the planet,” came from.)

Kimmel, who admitted Wednesday that he’d only seen a few portions of West’s viral interview, latched on to the rapper’s reference to leather jogging pants, which he says he invented before they became fashionable. For his late-night program on ABC, Kimmel re-enacted that portion of the interview with little kids.
