‘Friends’ or foes? David Schwimmer, James Corden, surprise guest engage in rap battle

In the latest edition of James Corden’s Drop the Mic rap battle, a recurring segment that appears on his late-night talk show The Late Late Show, he spits out some serious lyrical rhymes at David Schwimmer, focusing on the actor’s career and typecasting as “Ross from Friends.” A surprise celebrity guest jumps in at the end to put them both down.

In the hilariously awkward battle, Schwimmer knocks Corden’s acting ability and “celebrity” status, suggesting that he has always played the portly best friend character, implying that his midsection is so large he’s unable to see his you-know-what, questioning whether his wife is blind, and urging him to go back to England, or just go make him some tea.

Corden, however, comes back with a series of low blows, mostly relating to Schwimmer’s lackluster career. He suggests he has no friends since his show went off the air in 1995 (get it?), and ends his first set by telling Schwimmer it’s now his chance to “prove you’ve got balls, while I ignore you like Jennifer Aniston does your calls.”

After a series of insults delivered in as best a rap fashion as the pair could muster, funnywoman Rebel Wilson walks in to put both men in their places. “I think you’re great,” she sings to Schwimmer. “I’m your biggest fan … when I was eight.” Corden, meanwhile, gets dissed in relation to the most popular edition of his viral segment, Carpool Karaoke. “Carpool Karaoke, you think it’s your big thing. But everyone’s thinking ‘shut up and let Adele sing.’” Ouch.

It was thoroughly entertaining to watch the two men go at it and Wilson complete the epic battle. Check it out in full; it runs just under seven minutes.
