Alex Trebek Spits the Fresh Prince Theme Song on Jeopardy

The game show host clearly knows what's up.

Published June 30, 2015

Longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek proved during last night's episode of the popular game show that he's down with the turn up. When a lyric from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song was featured in a question, Trebek, 74, ditched the monotone voice and went all in, rapping the words over the song's iconic beat.


"In the theme to this '90s sitcom, 'I pulled up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!" he spat. Straight fire!

Even the contestants looked pretty shocked that the host was drippin' in so much swagu. Will Smith would be proud. When's that mixtape droppin', Alex?
