Alex Trebek has been holding out on us. The face of Jeopardy! has managed to host the show for over 30 years without ever alluding to a potential rap career.
But that all changed last night when Trebek had to rap lyrics by Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and Desiigner for a category titled “Let’s Rap, Kids!”
The collegiate contestants didn’t bode so well in this category, but the show gave us everything we didn’t know we needed in one moment when Alex Trebek rapped Desiigner’s “Panda.” A star was born.
