T-Pain, Lil Wayne Bring Back Freaknik With Adult Swim Special
T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Big Boi, Snoop Dogg, SNL‘s Andy Samberg and Bill Hader will all provide voices for Adult Swim’s upcoming one-hour animated special Freaknik: The Musical, premiering on Cartoon Network on March 7th. T-Pain headlines the all-star cast of voices, which also includes Lil Jon, Cee-Lo, Bootsy Collins, Kid of Kid & Play, Rick Ross, DJ Drama and more. The special revolves around a bunch of teens attempting to resurrect Atlanta’s spring break party Freaknik a decade after it was shut down in the Dirty, ultimately competing in the Freaknik: Battle of the Trillest contest.
“Back in the ’90s, Freaknik was Atlanta’s version of the ultimate block party,” T-Pain said in a statement. “It was Mardi Gras meets spring break at your crazy cousin’s bachelor party and anything could happen. A decade later, I’m bringing it back for people like me, who didn’t get to experience it the first time around. We’ve recreated Freaknik’s vibe and energy with amazing animation, new music and an all-star cast of characters.”
