Alex Trebek: Not good but rapping anyway

Trebek, who sounded like what your dad attempting to rap, was self-aware throughout the category and nearly seemed sad when the category was up.

Canadian game show king Alex Trebek rapped the lyrics to Drake's "Jumpman" in a Jeopardy clue just a year ago, but last night (February 20), he added to his rap repertoire thanks to a category cringe-worthily titled "Let's Rap, Kids!"

"I was just getting into this rap thing".

My personal favorite is "6 Foot 7 Foot", as Trebek's ideal pronunciation utterly decimates Lil Wayne's famous slant rhymes.

While may not immediately come to mind when thinking of the most hip hosts on television, the Jeopardy! presenter is now forcing audiences to rethink that evaluation. Trebek read the bars out in his signature delivery, even the famously repetitive intro for "Panda".

Monday night wasn't Trebek's first rodeo with rap lyrics on the ABC game show.

The Panda hit-maker seemed to enjoy watching Trebek rattle off his lyrics and retweeted a clip of the host with fire and panda emojis. So long as it is not nerdcore.
