In a rap/astrophysicist beef no one saw coming, B.o.B and Neil deGrasse Tyson engaged in a heated online conversation regarding theories about the shape of planet Earth.

The verbal spat started Monday, when the “Strange Clouds” rapper began tweeting his own flat Earth theories to his 2.3 million followers, upping the ante by claiming NASA and the U.S. Government are behind the widely accepted “round vision” of the planet.

Over 50 tweets later, Tyson decided to step in and provide a scientific perspective on B.o.B’s theory.

Then there was the quick-witted zinger:

The Atlanta rapper decided to put his money where his mouth is and release a diss track titled “Flatline.” In it, Bobby Ray discusses David Irving, a renowned Holocaust denier, and calls out Tyson for “taking checks” from the government. He also refers to Tyson’s comments from 2007, during which he mentioned the vision of Earth has changed over the years.

However, Tyson maintains his words have been taken out of context for years. The Bronx native summed up his thoughts about the planet by concluding, “cosmically speaking, we’re practically a perfect sphere.”

The confrontation continued with the help of Tyson’s nephew. Stephen Tyson shot back on his uncle’s behalf with his own diss track: “Flat to Fact.”

B.o.B hasn’t responded to the new song, but said he refused to stop spreading his truth.
