His physics lesson goes on through more than 25 tweets over a span of 20 hours. Trending on Twitter and Facebook, the Grammy-nominated artist garnered a lot of reaction, including a few words from renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The rapper also posted a couple YouTube videos that showcase conspiracy theories surrounding the the Zionists, Freemasons, and NASA. Twitter, as usual, took the humorous route in dragging the rap star. 

Moral of the story? Stay away from conspiracy videos on YouTube and definitely don’t use them as evidence in your argument with a world-renowned astrophysicist.
