It has been quite a while since KRS-One was claiming criminal minded and the few reports we've read about the event don't suggest there were problems or even calls of complaints to the force so we're very curious about the reaction of the LAPD to a Hurricane Katrina Relief concert at a warehouse in Downtown LA this past weekend.

KRS, Ras Kass and Dead Prez were all on the bill and while they are rarely on the same page as the police, there were no reports of violence, over-crowding or foul play.

Anybody on the scene know what happened?
