US star recently tweeted his belief in the conspiracy theory

US rapper B.O.B has released a new track after recently claiming that the world is flat.

The hip-hop star, best known for 2010 single ‘Airplanes’ featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore, spent the weekend tweeting about his belief in the conspiracy theory.

The rapper posted several tweets which he claimed to show that, contrary to widespread scientific beliefs, the Earth is not in fact round.

Having been largely criticised online, B.O.B has now shared a new song called ‘Flatline’, in which he addresses the ‘flat Earth’ issue.

“You ain’t seen my best, check mate in a game of chess / Globalists see me as a threat, free thinking got the world at my neck,” he raps on the track, later adding: “Flatline, Flatline, you’ve fooled us for the last time”.

B.O.B uses the track to hit back at Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist who responded to the rapper’s tweets in order to dispel his theories.

“Neil Tyson need to loosen his vest, they probably write that man one hell of a check,” one lyric reads. B.O.B also samples one of Tyson’s speeches. Listen below.
