Freaknic is an Urban Legend
8 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Best thing to happen to and come from hip hop in many years. Freaknic, The Musical has a star studded cast (of hip hop artists) that brings the excellently written script to life, as well as gives depth and realism. "Freaknic ain't real, its a urban legend, like Candyman (the character from the movie)," became, for me, one of the more memorable lines from the musical. Great one-liners and 90's references as the previously mentioned before are pleasantly placed throughout the musical, maintaining a quick pace of comedy. Freaknic, The Musical, as a work of hip hop music brings a fresh critique of the genre as a popular art form and as an urban form. Freaknic, The Musical also offers an intellectual component, similar to Adult Swim's The Boondocks, as it makes fun of conservative black thought for more liberal and modern culture. Once again, Adult Swim has delivered thoughtful programing for its targeted audience.
