Multi-platinum selling artist Lil Wayne is pairing up with T-Pain for “Freakniks”, an impending cartoon special set to air on Adult Swim. Weezy will be playing the role of Jesus Christ and is rumored to be featured in a parody music video titled “Ghetto Commandments.”
“Basically it was a Black Spring Break that went down in Atlanta and got shut down back in ’98 or ’99. So the show is going to resurrect that, and it’s going to be starring T-Pain and Lil’ Wayne and all these other artists like David Banner and some other dudes,” said Adult Swim creative director Jake Escobedo about the show. “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,” he added.
Outside of playing the ghost of spring break, T-Pain is working on his fourth studio album, Revolver.
“Freaknik” is set to air on March 21.
