Imiskoumbria

Imiskoumbria (Greek: Ημισκούμπρια), also known as Imiz is a comedy hip hop group from Athens, Greece. The group's roster has been the same since its inception in 1996 until 2010, constisting of rapper Dimitris Mentzelos (Greek: Δημήτρης Μεντζέλος), Mithridatis (born Mithridatis Hatzihatzoglou/Greek: Μιθριδάτης Χατζηχατζόγλου) and DJ Pritanis (born Kostas Kostakos/Greek: Κώστας Κωστάκος). They are widely credited for the establishment of hip hop as a force to reckon within the Greek music show business. In American and international releases, Imiskoumbria raps under Def Jam Records.

Name etymologyEdit

Ημισκούμπρια has been translated as "semi-mackerels" in English.

Σκουμπρί is the Greek word for the fish mackerel and is sometimes used in slang for elusive persons.

The first element ημι- is analogous to the formal prefix "semi-" (in contrast to the colloquial μισό "half").

Hence the name refers to "half-elusive guys". The combination of these two elements is used mainly for comedic effect rather than being meaningful, despite deep meanign with a mix of comedy witihn the group's elements.
