Perhaps you’ve heard that B.o.B believes that the Earth is flat. Perhaps you’ve also heard the rapper assert this wild claim in song form, on the song “Flatline,” while also taking a few shots at noted genius Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Now, Tyson’s nephew has recorded a response track to B.o.B’s “Flatline.” TYSON’s “Flat To Fact” is a diss track about science, so, we all win.

"I'm bringing facts to combat a silly theory/Because B.o.B has gotta know the planet is a sphere, G,” goes a line in the song. Here’s another line: “I got science in my corner, and there’s nothing to fear.”

Neil himself is featured on the track, dropping some scientific knowledge. Will B.o.B drop another song explaining why the Earth is flat? Or will we, as a society, move on before allowing that to happen?
