SMACK, co-founder and host of SMACK/URL, recently addressed the fight between Math Hoffa and Serius Jones, which took place at this year’s “Summer Madness 3.”
“I just want all the fans to know that we don’t condone that type of behavior here at the URL,” SMACK said in the video blog. “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.”
SMACK Says He Hopes Fight Doesn’t Hurt Math Hoffa’s Career
SMACK went on to say that he hopes this doesn’t interfere with Math Hoffa’s career.
“I just hope that Math Hoffa’s behavior on that night at ‘Summer Madness 3’ don’t hinder or don’t interrupt no future endeavors or no future opportunities for him,” SMACK said. “I don’t think he’s a bad person. I just thought that he just lost control at the wrong time. I felt real disrespected that that had to happen on my stage, on my league, just due to the fact that my team and myself worked for so many years to build this platform up. We’re at a stage where we got actors, professional athletes, Hip Hop moguls coming to our venues, coming and participating in our events, and to do that in front of the world just basically leaves a bad mark on our brand.
“We work countless hours,” SMACK added. “We go try to shop and find venues to put y’all in, and we work, spend a lot of money, just investing into elevating the look and the production of the events that we shoot just to give you guys a good look. And this is what you do? You violate our whole shit. I just feel that shit is just not right. I don’t like it. I feel violated and that’s just how I feel. A lot of y’all, I think that y’all don’t really know what this URL platform is for. When we built this platform, we built this platform for emcees, for up-and-coming emcees to basically showcase their talent, to link up with other emcees in different markets so y’all can do music together, do tapes together, tap into each other’s fanbase in different cities and shit like that, so we can travel the country and basically have our own industry within the Hip Hop culture.”

“Where I’m from, I don’t know what it is out there, but if somebody say word to they flag, I’m not in that lifestyle, but…where we from, if you say word to your flag, you better eat food or you gon’ be food,” SMACK said. “That’s how serious that…that’s the mentality of that type of quote. For him to use those words against me, somebody who has been supporting him from Day 1 of his career, I just got mad and I felt some type of way.”
“We definitely gotta have a conversation, but I’m not gonna let the fans suffer,” SMACK continued. “We definitely gonna release that battle. I’m still gonna have a conversation with him. I don’t know when yet but we gon’ talk because I genuinely have love for these niggas.”
Hitman Holla has responded to the blog.

SMACK Refutes Daylyt’s Allegations About URL, Calls Him A Character
SMACK also addressed allegations made by Daylyt. After his battle was canceled due to the aforementioned fight between Math Hoffa and Serius Jones, Daylyt told HipHopDX he felt URL conspired against him. SMACK addressed these statements in his blog.
“Everybody knows that Daylyt is a character,” SMACK said. “You cannot believe one word that this dude says. He’s a character. This is the same dude that dressed in a [KKK] suit, dresses up on stage as Batman, gets naked in a room full of men. He’s a funny guy. That’s why we hired you, dogs. We wanted to bring that level of entertainment to our stage to see what creative way you could basically engage our fanbase. But, it’s different when you basically wanna portray a gangster image…That negative shit, my nigga, is the shit that caused the demise of two of the greatest legends in Hip Hop. I don’t want no parts, and my associations don’t want no type of dealings with that type of energy.”
