During an episode of Jeopardy! on Thursday evening (February 22), a question was asked about the rapper in the category Recent R&B and Hip-Hop Hits. The clue? “Hitmaking was in his ‘DNA.’ He had ‘LOYALTY.’ He was ‘HUMBLE.’ & in ‘LOVE.’ — ‘DAMN.'” Despite "HUMBLE." being a No. 1 single for Lamar and DAMN. topping the charts as well, no contestant hit the buzzer in time to reveal the correct answer to the question.
