On Sunday, September 8, SMACK/URL held “Summer Madness 3,” an event that took place in New York’s Stage 48. During the event, which was marred by technical difficulties and delays, a fight took place between Math Hoffa and Serius Jones.
During their battle, Hoffa punched Jones in the face. A scuffle ensued with Jones falling to the ground. Hoffa then left the stage after security guards separated the two rappers.
Video of the battle surfaced on WorldstarHipHop.com. The video can be viewed below.
SMACK White, co-founder and host of SMACK/URL, addressed the fight during a blog, as reported today (September 17).
“I just want all the fans to know that we don’t condone that type of behavior here at the URL,” SMACK said in a video blog released on URL’s YouTube channel. “We don’t support it in no way, shape or form. At this point forward, as it stands right now, Math is definitely, definitely banned from the URL and won’t be able to participate in none of the URL events, just due to the situation that happened and the liability that it may bring to our business. It’s unfortunate because that’s my brother at the end of the day. I don’t hate Math. I just hate what he did. You gotta definitely hold your emotions, when we performing.
“This is a league,” SMACK continued. “This is an art form. When you’re a battle rapper, you’re supposed to be professional. I know things can get kinda real frustrating at times when you’re up there, but that’s part of the sport and if you can’t handle a punchline or a character of an opponent that you battling, then you really don’t need to be battling on URL or anywhere on anybody’s stage because that conduct is definitely not going to be acceptable to the fans or to the world.”
