'This Is Us' takes on 'Modern Family' in vicious rap battle

It was This Is Us vs. Modern Family as Chrissy Metz and Jesse Tyler Ferguson faced off in this week’s Drop the Mic rap battle.

“Your show’s about family dynamics, and it’s good. But I liked it the first time, when it was called ‘Parenthood.’ It revolves around family, and all ties together, but that’s been the plot of ‘Modern Family’ forever,” rapped Ferguson. Metz and Ferguson both star on hit television shows, but “Modern Family” has 80 Emmy award nominations and 22 wins under its belt, so there’s no denying bragging rights go to Ferguson, who also rapped, “Your show is full of flashbacks and emotional cues, and it’s even more depressing than watching Fox News. It’s a TV equivalent to singing the blues, like going against ‘Game of Thrones’ for Emmys — you’ll lose.”  

While neither should quit their day jobs to start a rap career anytime soon, they actually managed to hold their own. In fact, Metz threw down, rapping, “Jesse’s real confident, and you have to ask why? He talks a lot of shit for a guy in bow ties. You lost five times for ‘Best Supporting Actor,’ and you just play yourself, so maybe that’s a factor.” She continued to roast Ferguson’s Modern Family, rapping, “‘Modern Family’ is huge, it’s history, uncanny. But you always get upstaged by a kid named Manny.”
