Hulu Releases Trailer for 'Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told'

The highly-anticipated trailer for Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told has just been released.


Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told

Initial tensions arose upon the announcement of a documentary on the Atlanta street party, accompanied by rumors of a potential lawsuit from attendees opposed to the idea of Freaknik footage being aired. However, now, we are finally able to get a glimpse into the legendary street party that helped put Atlanta on the map in the 80s and 90s, thanks to Uncle Luke, Jermaine Dupri and 21 Savage.

"Freaknik was the greatest Black gathering in America," Rapper Lil Jon said in the trailer.


Originally starting as a Black college cookout, Freaknik quickly evolved into a phenomenon known for its wild stories of highway hookups and legendary late-night parties. The festival's rise to prominence came to an end amidst controversy, but its impact on Atlanta's cultural identity remains to this day.


"At its height, Freaknik was a traffic-stopping, city-shuttering juggernaut," said one of the producers in a press release. "It's deeply rooted in Atlanta's history of Civil Rights, Black leadership, and the celebration of Black culture and education. This festival could only have thrived in Atlanta."

The documentary, which will showcase the journey from Freanik's grassroots celebration to its complex influence on Atlanta's social fabric, features commentary from Killer Mike, Jalen Rose, Too $hort, CeeLo Green, former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and many others.

Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told premieres on Hulu on March 21.
