T-Pain’s ‘Freaknik: The Musical’ to Premiere in March
Auto-Tune king T-Pain has produced an animated homage to 1990's Atlanta Spring Break fiesta Freaknik, which is scheduled to air on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on March 7.
The one-hour special, 'Freaknik: The Musical,' took Pain two years to create, and features vocal appearances by Lil Wayne (playing Jesus), Snoop Dogg, Keri Hilson, Kelis, Big Boi, Rick Ross, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. Saturday Night Live comedians Andy Samberg and Bill Hader also round out the bill. T-Pain also voices "a party ghost."
'Freaknik' focuses on a group of students hoping to revive the party, which at one point attracted more than 250,000 people, until it was shut down in the late 90's.
Check out the trailer here. 'Freaknik: The Musical' airs March 7 at 11:30PM on Cartoon Network.
