Jeopardy Host Alex Trebek Spits Some Rhymes: Master of the Rap Game! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"During a category about rap on Jeopardy, longtime host Alex Trebek showed off his MC skills by dropping rhymes from Dr. Dre, Notorious B.I.G., the Beastie Boys and others." 



Had I lost the video and heard only the audio when Trebek read the answers in the rap category, I would have sworn that it was a playa from the hood subbing for Trebek as host of Jeopardy. Trebek had a touch of swagger in his vocal delivery, an apt homage to the rap genre.

To hear Trebek spitting rhymes from iconic old school rappers like Dr. Dre and the Beastie Boys made me lament the current deplorable state of rap.

I hope Kanye West was listening to the Pimpmeister do his thang, rap ain`t about using a bimbo reality celeb to hide your gayness, it`s about keeping it real.

Now that I have experienced Alex Trebek rap an entire Jeopardy category, my life is complete. Thanks Trebek for dropping that funky sh**!
