‘Jeopardy!’ Features Clue About Jay-Z’s ‘4:44′ Album
Jeopardy! once again proved their hip-hop pass is still valid, with another rap-related clue. This one involved JAY-Z.
In a recent episode, under the category "Business of Celebrity," the show writers dropped this gem. "4:44 the 2017 album by this rapper debuted exclusively on Tidal music service also owned by this rapper." The scoring leader, Steph, quickly chimed in with the correct answer.
This is a slight contrast to the last time a hip-hop-related query popped up on the show. Earlier this week, contestants were given the clue: "A song by Coolio from Dangerous Minds goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic.” Nick Spicher quickly coughed up, "Gangster's Paradise Lost," which was at first accepted, but later called back by the judges who deducted the $3,2000 points he's earned for answering the question. Cold world. Obviously, the correct answer is simply "Gangsta's Paradise." That's not as bad as the time someone mispronounced Tupac's name on the show.
Jeopardy! has a long history of sliding in clues relating to the rap genre. The hip-hop relation doesn't stop there. Last year, long-time host, Alex Trebek, sat down with Business Insider, and had some extracurricular fun, hilariously spitting bars from Migos' smash hit "Bad and Boujee" and DJ Khaled's "I Got the Keys" featuring Hov and Future. For the culture.
