Paraziţii (Romanian for “The Parasites”) is a Romanian three-man rap group founded in 1994. It consists of Cheloo (Cătălin Ştefan Ion), Ombladon (Bogdan Ionuţ Pastaca), and FreakaDaDisk (Petre Urda).

Known for songs like “Bad Joke” and “Playback”, the group was subject to restrictions by the National Audiovisual Council, due to heavy language. Television and radio stations were fined for playing some of their videos/songs and two videos were outright banned. This motivated their song “Jos cenzura!” (“Down with Censorship!”) which criticized the Social Democratic government and was released shortly before the local elections in June 2004.

Ombladon, member of the group, won the Best Romanian Act Award at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2004 with the song “Egali din naştere” (Born Equal).

Recently, they established their own label, 20CM Records, and started producing other artists. The first one is the band Anonim, whose start is promising.

The first recorded track, “În jur” (“Around” - a homophonic pun on Înjur - I curse), dated September 13, 1994, represented Paraziţii’s breakthrough. At the “Nici o problemă” (No Problem) album release concert, a big fight started due to the La Familia-R.A.C.L.A. musical war.
