"Jeopardy" Contestant Loses Money By Not Keeping It "Gangsta"

Killer Mike also gets in on the action.

Hazard maintained his habit of including Hip-Hop trivia into the mix with a couple of questions related to the topic in a recent episode. One particular contestant who seemed to respond to a question about Coolio properly before Alex Trebek delivered the news that, in fact, he lost $3,200 for mispronouncing "gangsta."

The question is: "A song by Coolio from 'Dangerous Minds' going back in time to become a 1667 John Milton's classic."

The contestant responded, "What is Gangster Paradise Lost?"

Trebek momentarily, would be granted a W for the question, but after the judges re-evaluated its response, the veteran presenter took the money for the bad pronunciation.

We're going to Nick that the error be a lesson to all of us. In 2018, you have to keep it gangsta at all times. Never Gangster #Danger pic.twitter.com/NMO7QsAfyI

In other places in the same episode, Killer Mike also does reference in a category called "Band is located."

Trebek declared, "Run The Jewels with El-P and Atlanta activist associated with the New York Times for a Top 10 list of songs of protest."

The question, of course, is "Who Is Killer Mike?," despite the fact that none of the participants knew.

The policy of franco Hip Hop powerhouse took to Instagram to share a clip of the episode and revealed her grandmother would have been thrilled to see him in one of his favorite programs.

"my Grandmother Mary is somewhere on the other Side proud AF of your baby that is used to see the Danger with it!", subtitle of the photo. "Look at what we have achieved!!!! @thereallyrealelp #AliceAndRevOrangeAreProud."
