Honestly, the fact that B.o.B is more famous for his flat earth conspiracy theories than his actual rapping career says a lot about him.

Despite all the scientific proof in the world, he is completely convinced that the earth is ‘as flat as a pancake’, and now he now he is dead set on proving this theory. Last week, he launched a GoFundMe page in an effort to ‘find the curve’.

The rapper is hoping to raise $200,000 to help him launch satellites into space in order to prove everything that is already a scientific fact and has been proven before.

“It’s Flat-Earth B.o.B,” he says in a YouTube video posted to the page. “I’m starting a GoFundMe because I would like to send one, if not multiple, satellites as far into space as I can, or into orbit as I can, to find the curve. I’m looking for the curve.”

The 29-year-old musician is quite a well-known conspiracy theorist, and he posts a lot about it.

Science said it, not me

Back in January 2016, he even posted a series of tweets, which he claimed was proof that the earth is flat.

The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart… where is the curve ? please explain this

“No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level … sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna be it either,” he wrote. “I’m going up against the greatest liars in history … you’ve been tremendously deceived.”

This even caught the attention of astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who hit back with straight up facts.  

@bobatl Earth’s curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that.

@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.

The feud escalated with B.o.B’s diss track “Flatline,” and continued with a diss track from Tyson called “Flat to Fact” that he wrote with his nephew. “I’m bringing facts to combat a silly theory because B.o.B has gotta know the planet is a sphere,” Tyson’s nephew raps on the track.

B.o.B’s campaign currently has raised around $650 out of the $200,000, so it’s a long way to go as of now, but if he’s actually able to pull it off, it will be the most hilarious thing ever!
