International recording artiste Kiprich, dressed in full military regalia, annihilated a tired-looking Merciless at Sting 2011 at Jamworld in Portmore, St. Catherine on Boxing Day. Hitting the stage after 6 a..m, he was forced to wait at least five minutes before Merciless dared to come onstage, Unperturbed, he kept the crowd warmed up by taunting Merciless by saying: 'weh grandpa de? weh grandpa de? Him waan lyrics call him out then?'.


He then deejayed a snippet of lyrics which made fun of Merciless'' sexual orientation. The crowd hollered and whooped as a big forward rolled through the venue. And then he deejayed again:

 "Ruff Kut, yu career denty/yu life span  no lengthy/remember yu inna jail ah pick up the soap gently/yu mussi miss Kid Ralph very much, bout touch?/when yu inna jail, ah get battery by twenty

Loud cheers greeted this statement, then the excitement level spiked again when Kiprich announced: 'dem say grandpapa ah forward'.

At this point, Merciless, dressed in an ugly brown suit circa 1959, trudged out, walking stick in hand, and shuffled to the front of the stage, affecting an old man's limp, much to the amusement of the crowd.

 Showing no mercy, Kiprich dissed Merciless with a full broadside which ended with the barb: 'yu go inna jail and yu come out fat, that means man wuk yu till yu swell'.

 Merciless hit back with a retort that suggested that Bounty Killer had sent his 'funny son fi war mi'. Kiprich hit back immediately : 'How Bounty reach inna di war?"

Then he turned to the crowd and told me:  'Say kuff the grandpapa'. The crowd bawled for blood. It was at this point that Kiprich effectively crippled Merciless' attempt at a comeback with this witty four bar verse.

Memba say yu and Kid Ralph related

Him gi yu man a road fi go pon date wid

yu a sing bout Ninjaman underpants,

And ah your brief Peter King wake wid


The crowd roared and whooped its approval. Merciless tried to hit back but his lukewarm verses were met with only stony silence and ominous glares from the crowd. Smelling blood, Kiprich moved in for the kill, delivering the the coup de grace eventually after admonishing Laing to "send something better". Kiprich deejayed a witty lyric that suggested to Merciless that he was a suspect in a high profile gay killing when he declared: "police have yu under investigation/dem find yu DNA pon Peter King divan'.

The clash was as good as over at that time.

Kiprich also performed at the GT Taylor Xtravaganza show in Black River on Christmas Day. He is now in Africa where he will perform at a show called '2012 Resolution' in Accra, Ghana on December 31st.

"It ah go mad, Africa tun up, mi ah go over de go celebrate this victory African style, back to the continent," Kiprich said in a release.
