    During Sunday night’s season premiere of Drop the Mic, comedian Ken Jeong faced off against NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal. The battle was so epic that James Corden said it “might be the best rap battle we’ve had on the show.”

    While O’Neal is no stranger to the rap game, with a few album he released in the ’90s, it was clear Jeong meant business and prevailed in the end.

    But don’t consider these two arched enemies, in an interview with Corden after the battle, O’Neal says that “Ken Jeong is the funniest man I’ve ever met in my life. It was actually a tough battle.”
