The Freak (And Sense) Stops Here
4 July 2010 | by StevePulaskiSee all my reviews

Freaknik: The Musical is not a movie, TV show, or a special. It has nothing that belongs in the category of special. It runs in the category of an annoying, atrociously bad film, combined with low grade animation, and even worse, bad lyrics that are hardly understandable because of the terrible syncing process and the chaos usually corresponding the song. It can't be to complicated for a special, which it isn't. Its just a loud show that has an excuse to say "the n word".

T-Pain is a decent rapper, sometimes his songs are a little graphic, but for the most part he is tolerable, but his musical talents are wasted in this mess. He plays "The Ghost of Freaknik Past" in which he brings life to a dead party that took place in Atlanta a number of years ago. To me the celebration should have stayed dead, even in a cartoon, the show is still abysmal.

In the mean time, four amateur rappers try to make their way across the state to get to the rap battle being held at Freaknik. Cee-Lo, Rick Ro$$, DJ Pooh, and Young Money get into the usual mishaps while on the road. They find a wild house party, they try to avoid a group that is ironically trying to whipe Freaknik out (too being ironic Al Sharptoin, Oprah, and Bill Cosby resemble the people against Freaknik), and they need to win the Rap Battle so they get some money to pay their rent and finally get the respect they "seemingly" deserve from their family, friends, and the culture around them.

The show is cheesy and poorly animated to a new degree of awful. The colors are putrid and only black, brown, puke green, and gray hit the screen. It's as miserable as a foggy day. The unkempt society of this show is motley and unappealing to the eye. Aside from the number of problems this show has, the music is what counts. The song by the "Sweet Tea Mafia" is tolerable and doesn't cause harm to the ears, but other songs like T-Pain's "Freaknik's Back" and "Save You" are rushed and failed experiences clearly identifying that this show was a procrastinated mess that doesn't deserve recognition.

I've always admired Adult Swim for their clever lineup of shows, humorous bumps, and cool advertisements among the network. Though for every bump Adult Swim put up for this garbage made me just die a little inside. To quote Ally Sheedy's line in The Breakfast Club and as well seen in The 82nd Academy Awards "When you get older your heart dies." To add mine to the cult classics of movie quotations, "Whenever I see an ad for Freaknik my heart dies." Starring: T-Pain, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Rick Ro$$, Lil Wayne, Young Cash, Sophia Fresh, Snoop Dogg, DJ Pooh, Kelis, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Cee-Lo, Lil Jon, Big Boi, Kel Mitchell, Affion Crockett, Charlie Murphy, DJ Drama, Mack Maine, Mike Jones, and Carl Jones. Directed by: Chris Prynoski and Jacob Escobedo.
