Now, it comes as no secret that the contestants on Jeopardy! don’t have a great track record when it comes to music trivia on the show. Over the past few years, videos involving clues about Paramore, Chromeo, Foo Fighters, and Frank Ocean have went viral, but you’d at least think they’d get the chart-topping dominator, Kendrick Lamar.

“Recent R&B and Hip-Hop Hits” was one of the categories on last night’s Jeopardy! episode, with the clue being: “Hitmaking was in his ‘DNA.’ He had ‘LOYALTY.’ He was ‘HUMBLE.’ & in ‘LOVE.’ — ‘DAMN.’” Man, even if you were up all night studying Socrates and Ukraine history, you would know what the answer to that clue is, right?
