When Keeping It 'Gangster' Goes Wrong For A 'Jeopardy' Contestant

Always keep it "gangsta." Always.

  • Daaaaamn, Daniel. We mean, shoutout to the Jeopardy team and the homie Alex Trebek for preserving the artistic integrity of one of Coolio's greatest hits, but our heart definitely goes out to the contestant, Leon. He was a few Gs closer to having Sallie Mae off his back. And, honestly, we'd say his Black card is probably well-intact since he guessed this fairly obscure reference.
