Jeopardy! contestant Steve made an easily avoidable yet understandable $400 mistake on last night’s episode, which had him confuse Future for Nas in the show’s “Hip-Hop Hooray!” category.
Of course, this isn't the first time Jeopardy! contestants failed miserably at answering even the simplest, most mainstream hip-hop questions.
To be fair, you can see how the prompt itself “In the past, this hitmaker of ‘Turn On the Lights’ and ‘Mask Off’ was Nayvadius Wilburn” could be confusing. Well, sort of.
While most of us would know Future to be the correct answer at least by the time host Alex Trebek uttered the words “Mask Off”, you can see how Steve would jump to his incorrect conclusion once Future’s given name was spoken.
