Nick Cannon has invited Kanye West to settle their issues on an episode of “Wild ‘N Out.”

The 37-year-old rapper has responded after the hip-hop star told him to stop talking about his wife Kim Kardashian West in a social media rant.

In a series of Instagram videos, Cannon wrote, “First off, let me say welcome back Ye from the sunken place, it’s a beautiful thing. Glad, you back with it, brother. Nothing but love and respect for you, you know I always had that …

“I’ve never said anything disrespectful or harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union. I salute it, keep it going. But you not going to tell me what I can and what I can’t say …

“I guess this is the way we [are] communicating now in 2018, via social media. I guess we don’t use phones and stuff like that no more.

“But just saying to my man Kanye that the 200th episode of ‘Wild ‘N Out’ is upon us … you’re more than welcome. Let’s talk about it, man. Come on the show.”

His comments — which included teasing Kanye that they could make jokes about Kim and his own ex-wife Mariah Carey — came after Kanye, 41, criticised him for a Complex interview where he suggested it wasn’t “far off of a concept” that Drake and Kim had slept together in the past.

In an Instagram post of his own, Kanye said: “First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon. I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife.

“If someone brings up my wife you say ‘Ye, I respect that man. I’m not speaking on that.’ Don’t be making no suggestions like somebody f—[ed] my wife.”
