(AllHipHop News) Earlier this year B.o.B became a trending topic for several days after the Atlanta native promoted the idea that the world is actually flat. He was immediately hit with a torrent of backlash from social media users, astronauts, and famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
B.o.B has continued to use his Twitter timeline to question a number of things many others would consider conventional wisdom. That way of thinking has led to the No Genre leader being labeled a “conspiracy theorist.”
Hot 97’s Nessa caught up with Bobby Ray to ask him about his thoughts on the tag.
“Me and the circle of people that I’m around and who I hang out with all the time – it’s normal to talk about stuff that people would deem conspiracy, that would not fall inside of that common ‘knowledge’ or common dialogue that people have,” stated Bob. “So I definitely hate that word [conspiracy]. But it is what it is. People call it whatever, but at the end of the day, the point is to provoke thought.”
B.o.B went on to add that he does not want people to automatically believe what he says. The “Airplanes” hit maker suggested more research should be done by each individual.
In addition, B.o.B suggested government agents have been tracking him since he began publicly sharing his thoughts about topics such as flat Earth, chemtrails, and genetic modification.
“The first couple of days they had people following the tour, seeing what I was talking about, seeing what I was saying at the shows,” he claimed.
