Twitter fingers turn to atom splitters.
The apparent feud between flat Earth truther B.o.B. and scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson continues to endure. After B.o.B. released NDGT diss track ‘Flatline’ earlier today, the astrophysicist’s aspiring rapper nephew, who goes by TYSON, has released a response called ‘Flat to Fact’.
As you may have guessed by the title, the track uses the same beat as Drake’s Meek Mill diss ‘Back to Back’ and cribs heavily, err, “pays homage” as the kids say, to the structure of Drizzy’s original. And like B.o.B.’s, this is also full of sampled Tyson lectures — only this time they are accurately employed.
Is this really our first genuine rap beef of 2016?
