Alex Trebek Rapped To Drake During Jeopardy — And It Was Glorious

Alex Trebek’s rap career might have started from the bottom, but now he’s definitely here.

The “Jeopardy” host spat some lyrics from Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West on Monday’s show, during a segment called “Let’s Rap Kids!” As one might expect, it was all done in a very precise, professional fashion.

“6’ 7’ 8’ bunch…young money militia & I am the commissioner, you don’t want to start Weezy, ‘cause the F is for finisher,” Trebek read out in a delightfully deadpan voice.


He then lamented not getting enough airtime to showcase his skills. “I was just getting into this rap thing,” he quipped. “I’m not too good at it, but I was just getting into it.”

This isn’t the first time that Trebek has taken on the the hip-hop world. In past segments, he’s also channeled The Notorious B.I.G. and the Beastie Boys.
