Tyler James Williams wowed both Sway and viewers alike when he bodied a freestyle over GloRilla’s “F.N.F” and “Tomorrow 2.”

The Abbott Elementary star stopped by Sway’s Universe to reflect on his past roles on Everybody Hates Chris and The Walking Dead.

After ruminating on how therapy helped his career, Sway got the 30-year-old actor to showcase another talent, by having Williams spit some bars over GloRilla’s seminal tracks.

“Fuck all this going back and forth I ain’t playing tennis, she said you asked where she was going why you in my business?” Williams raps at the 16-minute mark of the clip above. “This ain’t clue, who is you and why is you suspicious? Just be a man Peter Pan understand that she F R E E all the way free.”

This isn't the first time Williams has dropped some bars for Sway. Back in 2014, the actor stopped by the show and freestyled over Drake's “6 God" instrumental.

Abbott Elementary, which follows a group of public school teachers at a West Philadelphia elementary school, returned for its second season on Sept. 21 after its debut season snagged seven Emmy nominations and 3 wins at the 2022 awards.
