Bad Copy is a popular hip-hop group from Belgrade, Serbia known for its humorous lyrics and catchy slang. The members are Ajs Nigrutin (born Vladan Aksentijević), Timjah (born Rašid Kurtanović) and Wikluh Sky (born Đorđe Miljenović).
They have released several albums as a group and as solo artists and helped the popularisation of Hip hop music in Serbia in the new millennium.The group started off as a duo, with the original members being Ajs Nigrutin and Miki Boj.
Their first album Orbod mebej, released by ITMM in 1996, mostly contained comical songs rapped over instrumentals from popular American rap artists such as Method Man and Naughty By Nature. The standout track was "Zabaci Domaćine", which turned Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" into a song about a fishing trip gone wrong.
The album did not achieve media popularity, but it established them a cult following.The death of Miki Boj in Kosovo resulted in a hiatus of a few years. The group was then comprised of Ajs Nigrutin and Timjah, with Wikluh Sky joining later.
Songs recorded in that period showed major improvement over their original styles, developing their rapping skills drastically while still keeping their trademark humorous lyrics. They joined forces with Oneya, a then up-and-coming beatmaker who was working on starting the first Serbian hip-hop label, Bassivity.
They had a very prolific collaboration, recording lots of songs but none of them ever getting released. By the end of 2002, dissatisfied with their record being slated for release only after VIP, Oneya and Shorty even though they were the first ones with a full recorded album, they ended their contract with Bassivity.
Many of the recorded songs were later leaked to the internet, while some were released on other Bassivity projects.Recording all-new material in a radio station studio during the first half of 2003, the group released their second album Sve Sami Hedovi for the One Records label.
The album had a specific lo-fi sound as a result of being recorded and mastered in less-than-perfect conditions, but it was a huge hit on the strength of the first single, Uno Due Tre, produced by Wikluh Sky, with the complete song lyrics consisting of unconnected Italian words and phrases (some copied off of shampoo labels and clothing tags), and with a video recorded in the old town of Budva (Montenegro), by Đolođolo of Beogradski Sindikat.
The second single Možeš ti to, also produced by Wikluh Sky and also with a video by Đolođolo, was moderately successful. Sve Sami Hedovi sold more than 5000 copies, which is considered a great success with the current state of music in Serbia and Montenegro.
Thematically, the album contained an abundance of food-related lyrics (a trend they would maintain in subsequent projects), most prominently in the song Sarma Spremna (en: "the Sarma is done"). A particularly memorable performance of this song could be seen at their biggest concert to date, the 2003 show at the SKC concert hall in Belgrade, where they carried a table and a pot of Sarma onto the stage, ate it in front of the audience and handed it out to the first rows.
All three members of the group have recorded solo albums, with Timjah's being the only one not getting a release due to an early leak to the internet.Ajs Nigrutin has released two albums, "Nigrutinski rečeno" in 2002 and "Štrokavi pazuh" in 2005.
Wikluh Sky is the most productive member, constantly working on multiple projects, many of them outside of hip-hop, but seldom releasing them. Among his works are one reggae album with the group Shappa (with Coyote of the band Eyesburn); a punk album with the band Jogurt; a rock opera called "Zagađenje u Japanu" (en: pollution in Japan) about a transvestite turbo-folk star, written for the EXIT festival in 2005; a rap album called "Zašto brate Vikler?", etc.
Ajs Nigrutin and Timjah have released a compilation of songs under the name 43zla - "Sve Same Barabe" in 2004, with a list of guests including their young proteges Blind Business and Kibu, long-time collaborators Prti Bee Gee and Bvana, and others such as Who See.
The CD also contained the first PKS song, later to become an album-long collaboration between Škabo and his wife.Members of Bad Copy have also done songs with many other Balkan hip-hop artists, among which are Marčelo, VIP (and other Bassivity artists), Beogradski Sindikat, Edo Maajka, etc.
The third Bad Copy album, entitled "Najgori do sada" ("The Worst Yet"), was released in December 2006. Guests on the album include Škabo, Bvana, Edo Maajka, and Gospodar Vremena. The first video is for the song "Žoor".
