Lil Wayne to Play Jesus in T-Pain Cartoon

Auto-tune impresario T-Pain unveiled his new Adult Swim cartoon special, ‘Freakniks,’ at a Christmas party at his Atlanta home on Dec. 23. According to reports, Cartoon Network/Adult Swim executives showed up at the party to play clips of the cartoon special, which revisits Atlanta’s ’90s Freakniks party scene and includes Lil Wayne in its credits.

“Basically it was a Black Spring Break that went down in Atlanta and got shut down back in ’98 or ’99,” Creative Director Jake Escobedo says of the show’s premises and namesake. “So the show is going to resurrect that … It’s all drawn, and T-Pain plays the ghost of spring break, the Spirit of Freaknik. He brings this party back to Atlanta and the artists have done all this music for it, and it’s amazing.”

In addition to Lil Wayne, who plays Jesus Christ and performs a song titled ‘Ghetto Commandments,’ several rappers are said to be featured in the cartoon, including T-Pain’s artist Young Cash and David Banner. ‘Freakniks’ airs March 21 on the Cartoon Network.
