Neil deGrasse Tyson Literally Drops The Mic In B.o.B Feud

"And, by the way, this is called gravity!"

You ever feel like B.o.B. actually thinks airplanes are shooting stars?

The rapper showed off his hatred for science and "facts" recently, getting into an argument (and subsequent rap battle) with Neil deGrasse Tyson over the Earth being flat. Well, now the rapper's point appears to have flat-lined after Tyson's appearance on "The Nightly Show" on Wednesday. 

The scientist responded to a B.o.B. diss by schooling the rapper on exactly why he's wrong, making points about Calculus and B.o.B.'s "size" relative to Earth. (Yeah, dude went there.) But the best part came when Tyson gave us this gem:

"Isaac Newton, my man, said, 'If I have seen farther than others, it's by standing on the shoulders of giants.' Can I get an amen? So that’s right B.o.B. When you stand on the shoulders of those who came before, you might just see far enough to realize the Earth isn't fucking flat!"

He added, "And, by the way, this is called gravity!"

Cue the mic drop.

Pardon us while we go lose our minds.
