I can’t say I’ve tuned into Jeopardy! in the last 10 or so years, but clearly they’re trying to win back a certain demo here. While having Jeopardy! answers that land in the world of urban music is nothing new (as Pitchfork mentions, there was a Kanye answer last week), it seems like they’ve been going extra hard as of late. During last night’s episode, in the ‘My Name Is Symbolic Category’ the answers featured Prince, A$AP Rocky, and none other than Questlove.
I’m not sure if any of the contestants got that A$AP Rocky question right, but I’m fairly amazed to see it there. Shoutout to TJ with the no hesitation Questlove buzz-in. Score one for hip-hop… I guess? Check the questions below, which I should hope would be lay-up’s for anyone reading this blog.
