The creator of the recently released Psycadelik Thoughtz album posted several tweets challenging the notion that we are all living on a sphere. He wrote, “The cities in the background are approx. 16 miles apart… Where is the curve? Please explain this.”

Despite receiving push back from other Twitter users. B.o.B continued with his commentary, later adding, “Have you been to the edge? Or is that what your science book told you?” and “No matter how high in elevation you are, the horizon is always eye level … Sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna believe it either.”

B.o.B seemed to suggest the United Nations and NASA were hiding information from the world’s population about his claims. He concluded with, “A lot of people are turned off by the phrase ‘flat earth’… but there’s no way u can see all the evidence and not know… grow up.”
