Evel Knievel and Kanye West end the beef

Rapper Kanye West and daredevil Evel Knievel have settled the dispute over rap video.

Evel Knievel and Kanye West end the beef The famous rapper Kanye West and the stuntman Evel Knievel have settled a copyright dispute after a private meeting at Knievel's Florida home. The beef between the two started with the 2006 single Touch The Sky, showing Kanye West cavorting with Pamela Anderson and trying to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle over a canyon. It appeared to be a parody of the Evel Knievel's attempt to jump Snake River Canyon in Idaho in 1974, an attempt which failed after the parachute of his motorcycle opened too early. Evel Knievel said that the video and the use of "Evel Kanyevel" in a music video of "vulgar and sexual nature" was detrimental to his image and filed a federal lawsuit against Kanye West and his record label last year.

 Both Knievel and West have confirmed that an agreement has been reached after a recent meeting at the daredevil's home in Clearwater, Florida. "I thought he was a wonderful guy and quite a gentleman. I know he's had some tough times the past few weeks, and I hope things work out," Evel Knievel was quoted describing Kanye West after the settlement was reached.
