AceShowbiz - B.o.B is pretty adamant that the Earth is flat. After facing backlash, and even getting into a little argument with noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, over the theory he proposed on Twitter earlier this week, the rapper released on Tuesday, January 26 a song called "Flatline" to prove his point.
On the track, B.o.B of course insists that his opinion on the shape of the Earth is true. He also calls out Tyson and includes a snippet of one of his lectures. "Aye, Neil Tyson need to loosen up his vest/ They'll probably write that man one hell of a check," he raps before taking aim at NASA, questioning why it's "part of the Department of Defense."
Responding to the song, Tyson shared later in the day his very own diss track. Titled "Flat to Fact", it samples Drake's "Back to Back" and has rapper Steven Tyson spitting some bars like "I'm bringing facts to combat a silly theory/ Because B.O.B. has gotta know the planet is a sphere, G" on the scientist's behalf.
Despite scientific evidence proving otherwise, B.o.B tried his best convincing his Twitter followers on Monday that the Earth is flat. He shared numerous pictures to support the idea, including one featuring him standing against a sunset backdrop.

"The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart... where is the curve ? please explain this," he wrote, prompting Tyson to take to his own Twitter to shoot down Bobby Ray's conspiracy theory.
"Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) feet of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are way taller than that," Tyson wrote. "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."
