Ficus. Probably ficus elastica in distress! It looks like it could use a repotting, though they will tolerate cramped conditions. I have one in a 20 oz coffee container that has been there for 3 years. It does need root pruning to be happy in these tight quarters.

Repotting into a slightly larger container will give it some nutrients and a reboot, but if you choose to root trim and repot into the same container, then you may want to feed once or twice per year.

This article will help you to care for it:
