Dizaster punches Math Hoffa at KOTD

Young boy bravado overtook the King of the Dot battle in Los Angeles on June 28. After what some said was a good three-round battle, Diz threatened to punch Math Hoffa in the face. Math dared him to do it, so he did. From the video, it looks like Math was getting his ass handed to him though some say it was a set-up with Grape St. gang members strategically placed at the front to surround Math. Looked pretty one on one to me though.

Many young boys who make up the majority of the audience, love the drama of seeing fights in clubs like this. For business owners, this is a giant liability. To me, it’s just another example of the immaturity and exploitative tendencies of the event promoters. While this may seem sensational and good for business, it’s actually another miserable failure in event planning. If battle-rap gets bigger with the new Eminem-backed, battle rap reality show, this is what the core fans will look for, more juvenile WWE-type antics like this.

Dizaster and Math Hoffa on a better day.

Now ever since, Math snuck Serious Jones, people have been waiting for Math to get his. Who knew it would be one of the loudest mouths in battle rap, Dizaster, to do it. Dizaster does deserve some respect for punching a bully in the face, but it will come back to haunt battle rap as another low point being the biggest news from the genre. But isn’t that typical of a genre where the biggest news is niggas getting punched in the face, or pulling they dick out on-stage or bringing a notebook to a battle. These battle rap leagues are becoming as Hip Hop as Worldstar. You even had clowns talking about resurrecting some type of East vs West BS over this. Unregulated buffoonery is really what it is. SMH. Y’all young niggas won’t be satisfied until you run this concept into the ground. My suggestion is for sponsors to pull out of shit like this until it is regulated properly.
