2005 according to gully skeng man Prancehall
"Do you remember that bit in The Exorcist where Linda Blair's head's spinning around and green stomach bile is erupting from her mouth like that kinda thing is in fashion? Well, try to imagine the same scene if Skepta was in an Akademiks nightie and instead of calling out 'Karen', he was spraying out the names of MCs, while Father Jammer was sprinkling the booth with Holy Ribena and popping off shots as each name was bellowed out."
"Only then can you comprehend the merkery that they've both been dishing out. Jammer (who has turned up to every grime event this year with a CD in his pocket on the off chance he can hijack the stage and do a live PA of 'Murkle Man') has been getting the biggest reloads ever witnessed, while Skepta has been showering down MCs quicker than you can make a man say 'OH MY DIDDY'."
"Add to this, the fact that they've both only been MCing for a matter of months, and you can see why this year quite deservedly belongs to Jam and Skep."
1. The Jammer prank call mp3 and his ‘Murkle Man’ video
