Alex Trebek is known as the host of "Jeopardy!" He talks in a monosyllabic manner and doesn't get too excited as he reads off the answers from his board, searching for the responding questions from the show's contestants. Sometimes, the categories are a little off-kilter for the host, which was certainly the case on Monday night. "Let's Rap, Kids!" may not have been the host's first choice for categories, but he handled it with aplomb.

Trebek raps

The category of choice put the street cred of Trebek to the test. With lyrics appearing on the screen, the college contestants had to guess who the hip-hop artists that performed the raps were.

In order for that to happen, the "Jeopardy!" host was going to have to cite the lyrics out loud.

Some of the raps Trebek cited were relatively innocuous. Lyrics from Drake's "Started from the Bottom," Lil Wayne's "6 Foot 7 Foot," and Kanye West's "Famous" didn't seem to faze the "Jeopardy!" host. It got a little dicey when he had to read some lyrics from Kendrick Lamar's "m.A.A.d. City," with the snippet referencing gang violence. It even got a little silly when he had to say the lyrics to Designer's "Panda," which were just the word "panda" over and over again.

Rap aficionado

Trebek is no stranger to the hip-hop game on his show. In the past, clues have forced him to make reference to the Drake/Future tandem, Fetty Wap, and even Chance the Rapper.

At this point of "Jeopardy!" it may even be safe to say that the host is an expert in an unexpected musical genre.

The hilarious stylings of Trebek won't last forever, unfortunately. He has hosted the game show since 1984 and had a contract that runs through 2018. The Canadian is 76 years old, though, and there's an open question as to how much longer he can host the "Jeopardy!" He certainly doesn't need to anymore, as he surely has been paid hand over fist for the past few decades. Fans of the show and the host of the show should enjoy his rapping and his unique interactions on the competition for as long as possible.
