Bobby Ray Discusses Open Mindedness Toward Flat Earth Theory on Breakfast Club Power Radio Interview and Discusses 'Lyrical' Album Ether.
B.O.B. stays the course on Flat Earth acknowledging a few of its given unknowns (e.g., ring of ice or expanded plane), and says about Flat Earth, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make em' drink." Although they only discuss Flat Earth for the first two minutes of the half-hour show, with scant callbacks appearing here and there later on, Bobby Ray pointed out in opposition to the comment that, "Flat Earthers have no proof" that the globe model was put out by the Roman empire before anybody had been to Space, so how did they know it was globe? He also discussed Admiral Byrd as having been one of the last people to truly explore Antarctica, whom returned and mentioned it was abundant with resources, after which the Antarctic Peace Treaty was formed, and further exploration restricted.

The majority of the conversation seemed to revolve around Bobby Ray's notion of himself as a man first before an artist, and as an artist before a chartist. As opposed to going all out and flexing points about FE Thought, Bobby Ray is playing it cool but still holding his ground and defending his turf. I think this is a good way for people to hear about Flat Earth, and B.O.B. being chill about it keeps people relaxed, which helps.
In spite of the whole Alien Psy-Op Agenda, which I don't see occurring through B.O.B. my favorite tune on ETHER so far is E.T., Extra-Terrestrial, ft. Lil' Wayne. What's funny about this is it has all the right conditions to be the perfect Illuminati programming type track, but when I hear BOB break in with his verse, he feels like the extraterrestrial who is speaking in different languages, and connoting that this is what it feels like to investigate Flat Earth and try and talk to people about it: you feel like an alien who is talking in a different language. So there is poetic justice to this artistic move. Plus, Lil' Wayne's Chorus Bangs, even though his verse comes up shy. BOB spoke on the interview as an analogy to his music about how he wants to have a "Restaurant where all different types of people can eat." ETHER is a particular kind of food.
