Rapper B.o.B says the Earth is flat. He’s sure of it. Sunday night he fired off a series of tweets with his supporting evidence: “A lot of people are turned off by the phrase ‘flat earth,’” he wrote. “But there’s no way [you] can see all the evidence and not know… grow up. You can regurgitate force fed information all day… still doesn’t change physics.”

And on Tuesday morning, he dropped “Flatline,” a rap about how the horizon is a flat line. “Globalists see me as a threat,” he says early in the three-and-a-half-minute track. Shortly after, he compares himself to Malcom X.

The rap also includes a recording of astrophysicist and author Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who responded to B.o.B’s tweets on Monday with real life science. “Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) feet of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are way taller than that,” Tyson tweeted to the rapper. “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.”

The science didn’t work though and B.o.B remained steadfast in his claims all Monday afternoon, sharing more proof and YouTube conspiracy videos on his social media.
