¯\_(ツ)_/¯Rapper B.o.B. went on a Twitter rant on Monday attempting to prove the Earth is flat, but astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson caught wind of the hilarity and schooled B.o.B., and it set him spinning (pun intended). So much so, he created a diss track titled "Flatline" (pun intended) and takes shots at the scientist, using out of context clips from Tyson's past lectures to make him sound unknowledgeable.

@bobatl Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
@bobatl Polaris is gone by 1.5 deg S. Latitude. You’ve never been south of Earth’s Equator, or if so, you've never looked up.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 25, 2016
