A recent game of Jeopardy left contestants stumped and clueless when a certain clue under the category “I’d Like To Thank” stopped them in their tracks. The contestants were hit with the question, “Kanye West for giving us so many different versions to choose from of this early 2016 album,” and what might seem like a no brainer for many didn’t come as easy for the players on the panel.
Nobody rang their bell, leaving the host, Alex Trebek, to blurt out, “That would be ‘The Life Of Pablo’.” Followers of the rap culture were amazed by the silence in the room, seeing as though the hip-hop genius made headlines almost everywhere regarding the release of the popular album. West deliberated on the title of the project for months before the album was released, and dropped new versions to a few songs following the release of TLOP.
Several news outlets also discussed the chaos he caused from trying to shut down the streets of NYC for a free concert and the Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden that debuted the album.
By their priceless reactions, it’s clear not everyone is team Yeezy. That’s a $600 dollar loss for the contestants.
