Alex Trebek might not ever drop a mixtape in this lifetime, but thankfully we don't have to wait for that miracle to hear him drop bars.

The Jeopardy! host revealed a "Let's Rap, Kids!" category on Sunday night's show, and to the delight of contestants and Twitter alike, Trebek read lyrics with the level of enthusiasm that only he can bring.

In his incredibly regal voice, Trebek was forced to recite lines from Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and more during the show.
