Dizaster and Math expressed their feelings on the NYPD recently shutting down the Smack/URL Armageddon battle event for basically no reason.  Both Diz and Math stated that they feel as though the NYPD doesn't support hip-hop and that racism was a major factor involved.  

Smack has also confirmed in a video addressing the matter that the police were told to come to the scene and shut down the event because City Council didn't feel comfortable with the sort of demographic that battle rap brought to the area in NYC.  Obviously, racism was involved, when no one was even acting out or doing anything to warrant the event being shut down in the first place.
