The celebrity astrophysicist and the rhyme-spitter argue over whether the Earth is round or flat
Celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s beef with rapper B.o.B over whether the Earth is round or flat took another turn on Monday night, with the rapper’s release of the track “Flatline,” which takes aim at Tyson.
The track seems to suggest that Tyson is in league with globalists out to get the rapper.
“Globalists see me as a threat,” the rapper says on the track, later rapping, “Neil Tyson need to loosen up his vest/They’ll probably write that man one hell of a check.”
Tyson got into it with the Atlanta rapper via Twitter on Monday, after B.o.B published a post suggesting that, if the Earth was in fact round, the New York skyline should not be visible behind 170 feet of curved earth from nearby Bear Mountain.
The astrophysicist replied that, in fact, “Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.”
Tyson also suggested that B.o.B might be “regressively basking” in the Flat Earth Theory.
No word on whether Tyson will get on the mic himself to offer a musical reply to this latest volley.
