In 1984, Alex Trebek became the host of Jeopardy! and Run-D.M.C. put out their self-titled release, which is considered rap's first album. This shared genesis has always made Trebek's hip-hop moments magical, and on Monday they may have peaked.

As part of the show's annual College Championship, Jeopardy! featured a category titled "Let's Rap, Kids!" where Trebek had to do his best vocal imitations of today's top hip-hop stars including Drake, Lil Wayne and Desiigner. What is, amazing?

Leave it to YouTube for someone to sync up Trebek's vocals with the beats for even further hot fire:

It's created a viral title wave, which even the show's social media is now acknowledging.
