Trebek rapped, "Started from the bottom now we're here, started from the bottom, now the whole team here," from Drake's "Started From The Bottom" as he quoted the clues to category "Let's Rap, Kids" as part of the Jeopardy! College Championship Semi-Finals episode.
"Panda, Panda...Panda, Panda, Panda Panda Panda," he continued in the $1,000 clue with the correct response being "Who is Desiigner."
"I was just getting into this rap thing. I'm not too good at it, but I was getting into it," Trebek joked as the game show headed into commercial break.
For the final $400 clue, the 76-year-old rapped "They mad they ain't famous, they mad they still nameless...but we still hood famous, yeah, we still hood famous," from West's track "Famous."
"I hope I don't get an email from him," he said afterwards.
