Although Freaknik’s been missing in the Atlanta party scene for years, a neighboring Nappy Boy is bringing back…to TV at least.
T Pain has teamed up with Adult Swim for a one hour animated TV series titled “Freaknik” playing off the annual Black college party that made Atlanta a Spring Break mecca in the 90s.
Although the event was canned in 1999, the animated series hopes to revive old memories of the party scene with Teddy Pain executive producing and playing the “Ghost of Freaknik” for the production.
As previously reported Pain won’t be alone in the series, Lil Wayne lends his voice to the program playing a character named Jesus.
A preview of the cartoon is below.
In related news the election of the new mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed has the city abuzz with a rumor that Freaknik may return to stimulate the economy.
If that’s true, expect him to definitely be up for reelection in the coming years.
