43zla is a Serbian hip-hop group from Kotež, a neighbourhood in Belgrade, Serbia. The group's original line-up wasTimbe and Ajs Nigrutin (members of the group Bad Copy). Their first singles were "1,2 akcija", "Kontrabas" and "De je kesa". Later, four more musicians, Bvana, Moskri, Mikri Maus and Eufrat joined the group.
Origin of the name
43 is the number of the bus that frequents Kotež, the part of Belgrade where some of the members (Timbe, Ajs and Eufrat) live and the others (Bvana, Mikri Maus) like to hang out. The suffix "zla" means "evils" in Serbian. Phonetically, the band's name is pronounced chetres-tree-zla in Serbian. It has double meaning, since the ree-zla part (rizla) means smoking paper, so in Serbian slang it means 40 rizlas ("Četr'est rizla") or 43 evils (Četr'es tri zla). It was one album project which involved all the most popular hip hop MCs and bands from Serbia, such as Bad Copy, Beogradski Sindikat and Prti Bee Gee.
