Atlanta rapper B.o.B starts beef with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson

We’re not sure what to call this one — North Pole vs. South Pole? Over the Rainbow beef?

On Sunday, Decatur-raised rapper Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. aka B.o.B took to Twitter to prove the earth is flat.

Yesterday, astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson took the time to offer some scientific explanations to B.o.B’s continued Tweets on the topic:

B.o.B responded by getting back in his lane and starting a rap beef with Tyson (except Tyson doesn’t rap as far as we know, so…)

B.o.B released a song on SoundCloud directed at Tyson and his many other doubters. The song features recordings of Tyson’s voice (CAUTION! SOME EXPLICIT LYRICS):

But um, B.o.B said he definitely isn’t doing this for publicity or to sell records.

Tyson, thus far, seems to not give a cosmo.
