Neil deGrasse Tyson Takes To ‘The Nightly Show’ To Drop The Mic On B.o.B.

By now, the world should painfully aware of this whole “flat earth” debacle between Atlanta rapper/truther B.o.B. and the mighty super scientist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Their feud was one that graced the world with two of the strangest diss tracks that may have ever manifested in the long and treasured history of this culture.

Last night, however, things escalated well-beyond the shade-throwing phase, to atmospheric heights, if you will. During an impromptu stop at Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, NDT did more than merely endorse a track from this nephew. The renowned astrophysicist puts down the sandwich, takes off his jacket and picks up the mic, firing off truth bombs of physics, capping the dissertation off with a fitting mic drop, courtesy of gravity, of course.

You can watch Neil deGrasse Tyson’s epic B.o.B. takedown below.  If you’re really looking to dig into this non-Kanye/Wiz beef, jump back and hear both of there diss tracks. But if you, like the rest of us, are hoping for a more complete and informed democracy, please, please, please do your part in the fight against sheer, ludicrous ignorance.
