sounds like he bottomed out hardcore in it (id kick his ass)...he's either broken at exhaust mount (aka, exhaust rubber), or the mount has come off the bracket...if its not that it could be he has broken a bracket completely.
another thought (although not likely from how you discribed it) is that the cat's heat shield has come loose, that can make a wicked rattle.

If its moving hes probably somehow broken one of the rubber rings that holds the exhaust, like everyone has said. However, if you fix that and the problem persists, he may have broken lose one of the plates in the resonator... Thats happened to me and its a bitch.
