Neil DeGrasse Tyson Literally Schools B.o.B for Thinking Earth Is Flat

Rapper B.o.B is certainly outta his mind this time. He recently went on a twitter tirade, spamming his followers with YouTube conspiracy videos, some over two hours long. He was so far lost in this conspiracy that he began tweeting things like, “A lot of people are turned off by the phrase ‘flat earth’ but there’s no way.” He wrote on Twitter, urging others to “see all the evidence… grow up. You can regurgitate force fed information all day… still doesn’t change physics.”


Tuesday morning, we thought maybe B.o.B would sleep on it, and decide perhaps he wouldn’t publicly go against generations of accurate science. But he did. And he dropped a track entitled “Flatline”. To say the track is “fire” would be inaccurate. Because B.o.B probably believes that fire is just corporate sponsored illusion, or some other conspiracy.

The lyrics are pretty unbelievable: He says, “Globalists see me as a threat.” What are “globalists”? Human beings who live on Earth and have eyes? Then he compares himself to Malcolm X, which you don’t have to be a scientist to refute that.

Even after famed astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson refuted his conspiratorial tweets, B.o.B played a recording of the scientist over the track. Degrasse Tyson told B.o.B straightforward and in direct response to his “theory” that “ Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) feet of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are way taller than that,” and,  “Polaris is gone by 1.5 degrees south latitude. You’ve never been south of Earth’s equator, or if so, you’ve never looked up.”

He even was gracious after the vicious scientific schooling of B.o.B, tweeting: “Duude – to be be clear, being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.”

But listen to “Flatline” and decide for yourself.
