When you think of the greatest rap beefs of all time, a few names come to mind. 2pac vs Biggie. Nas vs Jay Z. Soulja Boy vs Intelligence. And, my personal favorite, B.o.B vs Science.
Most of America probably hasn’t thought about B.o.B in seven years, but this man has been putting on his lab coat and doing some important research for all of us during that time. Inspiring.
For those of you who aren’t aware, B.o.B, the rapper behind Airplanes, literally thinks the Earth is flat — and he’s on a mission to prove it.
From Huffington Post:
Rapper B.o.B thinks the world is flat and he’s hoping to put your money where his mouth is.
The rapper just started a GoFundMe campaign called “Show BoB The Curve” that aims to help the celebrity non-scientist “purchase and launch multiple satellites into space.”
Clearly not enough scientific research has been done on whether the Earth is round or flat, so your boy Bobby Ray is coming to the rescue. Yet somehow, the man has only raised less than $2,000 of his $200,000 goal thus far.
You ungrateful sons of bitches. Have you COMPLETELY forgotten how catchy Nothin’ On You was?! Shame on you. Shame on all of you.
B.o.B’s been ranting against all this “Round Earth” BS for a while now, and he’s willing to die on this hill if he has to. In 2016, he posted this thinking emoji-inducing tweet…
as well as one that said, “No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level … sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna believe it either.”
You have to admit, the man has some pretty good points. Your move, scientists.
In 2015, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson pretentiously tried to call out the rapper on Twitter and on The Nightly Show, insisting that the Earth is “round” or whatever. But what the hell does he know?!
I hear you, B.o.B. Continue standing up for your beliefs. There are millions of scientists who disagree… but they got nothin’ on you..
