Drake and Future

Who knew Alex Trebek had bars?

On Wednesday night there was a “Musical Acts” category on Jeopardy, and the iconic host had to read lyrics to Drake and Future‘s “Jumpman” from their collaborative project, What a Time to Be Alive.

As Trebek struggles to read the fellow Canadian’s lyrics,“Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin’/ Uh, uh, uh, I think I need some Robitussin,” you can hear the crowd laughing in the background. He even forgot a “Jumpman” in the process.

This isn’t the first time Jeopardy has made headlines this month.

Trebek threw a light jab when he critiqued a contestant’s favorite genre of music. “It’s called Nerdcore Hip Hop,” the contestant described. “It’s people who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners, you know? It’s really catchy and fun.”

In his deadpan voice, Trebek responds “Losers, in other words?”
