Alex Trebek semi-raps on ‘Jeopardy!’

The greatest rhymes to come out of Canada indisputably belong to Snow, whose chart-topping 1992 single "Informer" seemingly ruled everyone’s walkman in the early ’90s.

Indisputed until earlier this week, when Jeopardy! host and Ontario native Alex Trebek dropped some rhymes of his own while reading questions in the "It’s a Rap" category.

His enthusiasm was a bit lackluster, but Trebek showed a slight semblance of flow, reciting lyrics from Grandmaster Flash, Notorious B.I.G. and The Beastie Boys. Contestants Eric and Mary went toe-to-toe, sweeping the category while contestant Sarah stood off to the side.

Overall, Trebek should stick to his day job, but the 73-year-old can always fall back on a amateur rap career when he leaves the Jeopardy! set once and for all.
