It’s a known fact that Alex Trebek loves his hip hop. And every couple of months, that appreciation will reflect on his flagship show Jeopardy! in the most hilarious of ways: a stodgy category where Al matter-of-factly recites various rap lyrics to the unassuming contestants.
This week, the Rap Game Game Show Man was back at it again, quizzing the competitors on the majesty that is The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.
Listen to the passion in Alex’ voice, that unrelenting fervor. The guy who answered it correctly – and quickly, mind you – should have won double the dollars for that alone.
It didn’t unnoticed, either. Peep Anderson Cooper’s reaction on his CNN show a few days back.
Everything about this is exactly why I love hip hop culture. Now, if we can get Pat Sajak and Alex in a rap cypher, we’d be in business.
