Michael Jordan vs. Muhammad Ali in latest 'Epic Rap Battles' video

Comedy Central’s "Key & Peele” help the guys from “Epic Rap Battles of History” with their latest battle: Muhammad Ali vs. Michael Jordan.

Keegan-Michael Key plays Jordan, the former Chicago Bulls No. 23, and Jordan Peele raps as “The Greatest,” boxing legend Ali. The new video, from Maker Studios’ record-breaking series created by Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD (Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist), who met in Chicago while freestyle rapping, premiered Tuesday.

"Why don't you dodge this battle like you did Vietnam," Jordan raps to Ali, "cause you got as much chance of beatin' me as Lebron."

"Your whole basketball career turned whack when you came back a wizard like Gandalf the Black," Ali fires back.

New “Epic Rap Battles" episodes launch every other Monday through Dec. 16 at
