James Corden and David Schwimmer might not be Friends after engaging in a vicious rap battle.

The former Must See TV star and the Late Late Show host went mic to mic on Thursday night with Corden, a.k.a. “The Rappin’ Assassin,” coming out hot.

“Millennials, let me introduce you to this guy. His name is David – he was famous in ’95.” Shots fired!

Referencing Schwimmer’s recent role in the O.J. Simpson trial series American Crime Story, Corden spat, “He was a Kardashian on TV, but that was only for pretend. You played Robert, and that was a great combo. But you were so white, you shoulda probably played the Bronco.”

Teeing up his opponent’s rhymes, Corden finished with one last slam: “Now it’s time for you to prove you’ve got balls while I ignore you like Jennifer Aniston does your calls.”

And Schwimmer, 49, did not disappoint. After reaming the Brit over his weight and questioning his fame, he concluded, “Rap was born in this country, you’re a tourist here. Do us a favor, James – just change your career.”

Corden, 37, bit back with some sick references to the Friends theme song and this thinker: “Oh, come on, David Schwimmer. How are you such a loser when your name rhymes with ‘winner’?”

But the moment when the gloves really came off? Cue this Marcel blast: “Destroy me, please. Your rhymes totally blew. I worked with a monkey [that] had more skills than you.”

And that’s all before Rebel Wilson took the stage to drop some more sick burns on both guys.
