Trebek read the “Musical Acts” for $400 clue to the three contestants: "This Canadian rapped, 'Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin', uh uh uh, I think I need some Robitussin."

The answer, of course, is “Who is Drake?”

This isn’t the first time Trebek has dropped rhymes on the long-running game show. Some of his most memorable lyrical moments include reciting Grandmaster Flash’s lyrics in January 2014, and rapping Will Smith’s “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” last year. But the timing of this latest Jeopardy! moment couldn’t be more perfect.

The Canadian rapper recently celebrated his 30th birthday on Sunday, October 23, with a star-studded birthday bash in West Hollywood at Delilah.

The “One Dance” rapper was celebrated by a bevy of celebs, including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and John Mayer.

The exes and frenemies attended the party without any bad blood moments. As previously reported by Us, Swift politely avoided Perry and Mayer.

“Taylor stayed at her table [with the] crew she came with,” an insider told Us of the singer-songwriter, who arrived at the party with Karlie Kloss. “Taylor was ready to party when she got there, but when she realized Katy and John were there, she just stayed put at her table.… She didn’t want to make a big scene and leave when she saw they were there too.”
