Rap artist – and Flat Earther – To Perform at Stetson

You may know B.O.B. as a rap artist but you may not know he believes the earth is flat.

Stetson University is known for its commitment to upholding values of diversity and inclusion… and apparently, that inclusion encompasses flat earthers. Hatter Productions’ spring 2019 concert headliner, B.o.B., will be performing at Stetson’s Edmund Center on March 21st. B.o.B. is a professional rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and one of the most outspoken flat earth sympathizers in the rap community.

           Some of B.o.B.’s most popular songs include “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams, “Nothin’ on You” featuring Bruno Mars, and “Magic” featuring Rivers Cuomo, but it seems he may be even more well known as a member of the Flat Earth Society.

In January of 2016, the recording artist sent out a series of tweets, one suggesting that the earth has to be flat because you can’t see the curve of the earth’s surface.

        No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level … sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna believe it either.

This seems to be a sticking point for B.o.B. in the flat earth argument, who, in 2017, started a GoFundMe page to raise $200,000 dollars to send satellites into space in order to “find the curve” of the earth’s surface. According to flat earth conspiracy theorists like B.o.B., or “Flat Earth Bob,” if the earth were in fact round, the curvature of the earth should be visible to the naked eye.


B.o.B.’s plight has gained enough traction that world-famous astrophysicist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, has responded to the claims that the earth must be flat because you can’t see the curve of the earth, tweeting:





B.o.B.’s twitter feed has been empty of conspiracy material for some time now, but there is still hope that, if we’re lucky, this year’s spring concert will turn into a flat earth TED Talk.
