Already at odds, Neil deGrasse Tyson and B.o.B engage in hip-hop fisticuffs
‘Bruh, be careful what you read.’
It’s only Tuesday, and it’s already been a big week for B.o.B.
The rapper, who’s best known for his 2010 hit “Airplanes,” caused a stir Sunday when he started tweeting about the Earth being flat. Then Monday, America’s favorite astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson shot back a 20-tweet reply, outlining how we can tell the Earth is, in fact, round.
Not to be one-upped, the rapper raised the stakes Tuesday by releasing a diss track to his SoundCloud.
The best part may be the verse where he gives you a ton of things to Google:
I see only good things on the horizon
That’s prob’ly why the horizon is always risin’
Indoctrinated in a cult called science
And graduated to a club full of liars
Heliocentrism, you are the sixth victim
f**k you and your team, you can sit on the bench with ’em
They nervous, but before you try to curve it
Do your research on David Irving
Stalin was way worse than Hitler
That’s why the POTUS gotta where a kippah
I’m a man first before an artist
Get a lawyer, look up Dr. Richard Sauder
Stay woke, y’all.
Update 3:43pm CT, Jan. 26: Not to be outdone, Tyson has fired back at B.o.B with—you guessed it—a diss track of his own. Like the time Ghostface Killah threatened the life of Action Bronson by saying he had “shooters” who handled his dirty work, Tyson leaned on his goons for the verbal assassination attempt.
Performed by some dude named Steve Tyson and employing Drake‘s “Back to Back” beat, this subsequent diss track is downright engaging.
