Alex Trebek is rapping again and, this time, it’s for real.

‘Jeopardy!’ got rhythmic Tuesday night when a category called “The 1990s Rap Song” required Trebek to read lyrics from notable 90s numbers in hip-hop. From Notorious B.I.G’s ‘Mo' Money, Mo' Problems’ to the Cypress Hill hit ‘Insane in the Membrane,’ Trebek didn’t flinch at rap-related colloquialisms like the dropped ‘g’ in ‘thinkin.’

Trebek wasn’t the only MC rocking the mic that night. History-making contestant Ken Jennings showed that he might just be a hip-hop fan, as he answered almost every question in the category.

Watch below to hear possibly the greatest ‘Jeopardy!’ answer ever: “What is, ‘Mo' Problems.’”
