The writers for Jeopardy are OK in our book.
During Wednesday night’s episode, the contestants were given a clue that required Alex Trebek to rap the lyrics from Drake’s verse on “Jumpan.” And, as you can imagine, it was beautiful. The $200 clue, which was under the “Musical Acts” category, read “This Canadian rapped ‘Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to the somethin’, uh uh uh I think I need some Robitussin.’”
Contestant George took the lead with the correct answer, Drake, to which Trebek replied, “I think I left out one Jumpman there.” GOAT.
Twitter couldn’t get enough of the clip.
This is just the latest in a series of Jeopardy hip-hop clues that have gone viral. We’ve seen ones featuring Fetty Wap, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Iggy Azealia. And who could forget that entire category dedicated to Beyoncé?
