B.o.B. has returned with another song aimed at promoting his belief that the world is flat.

The “Airplanes” rapper first dropped his song “Flatline” six years ago, which unveiled his support for the debunked conspiracy theory. He was met with significant backlash as a result of the song, as the conspiracy theory often dabbles in anti-Semitic views of Jewish people.



In his new song “Ted Talk,” B.o.B pushes back on his critics and stands firm in his flat-earth faith.

“First of all don’t call me woke I seen the shit they was plotting,” he raps. “They put Neil Tyson on TV to make a mockery of it/ Yo, these shows be owned by Viacom and they friends/ Why would I walk into the lions den and sit and pretend like they ain’t threatened by my mind?/ Because I ain’t gonna comply/ I mean if I said the sky was purple would it have been such a crime?/ Charlamagne Tha God and Lil Duval try to tarnish my image, could have just gave me a call.”

B.o.B spoke with HipHopDX about the flat-earth backlash back in 2020 and said his feud and ultimate diss tracks aimed at famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson were a result of feeling disrespected.

“For me it wasn’t even so much the ‘Flat Earth,’ shit, but it was like when I was doing the elements shit and cloning and all that shit bro it — I was for sure, I was like, ‘They gone try and get me bruh,’” Bobby Ray said. “Because you know it’s like, most people when they go through that type of shit, that awakening phase, they do it on their own time. But me, I did it in public.”

He continued, “I was just really angry because I really didn’t like fucking Mr. Potato Head [Tyson] coming at me like that — I was like, ‘Who the fuck.’ Then, somebody was like, ‘You should make a song called “Flatline,” and I was like, ‘Yea man, fuck yeah I’m doing this now.’ So I’m just like, unloading the whole clip and just like, ‘Fuck it, fuck it, fuck it, fuck it,’ and in hindsight, that’s some wild ass shit.”

B.o.B. first mentioned his new song “Ted Talk” while dispelling antisemitism allegations with TMZ back in August.



“Some stuff just kinda sticks with you, man,” B.o.B said of being canceled. “This the era of cancel culture and people finding old things you said. You say one wrong thing and you’re done for. I just feel like I don’t really have any ill intentions in my heart. I’m an honorable person, I treat people respectfully, I’m not prejudice. So I just feel like you can’t really stop somebody, you can’t cancel somebody like that.”

He added: “But I did feel the need to clear the air and kinda just move past it. So I have a song called ‘Ted Talk’ that I’m putting on my next Elements project, so hopefully that will doust the flames.”
