Red Carpet Rundown: Freaknik The Wildest Party Never Told Private Screening In Atlanta

Last week I attended a very fun private screening of the most anticipated film called, Freaknik The Wildest Party Ever Told! In attendance was producers, historians and rappers who all attended Freaknik at some point that talked about their wild stories and more! I spotted Jermaine Dupir, Dallas Austin, Kandi Burruss, Da Brat, Yung Joc and a host of others that was eager to see the documentary and hoping to get a glimpse in the footage hoping they saw themselves lol!

Inside The Bank which was the venue of choice, there were fun stations where you could get your teeth blinged out, key chain station, and plenty of photo opt areas, so much fun! It was signature cocktails, dj and dance floor. Girls were dressed from the era in their sexiest garbs!

I attended one year in 1994 with my best friend Heather, we had a complete blast but I never went back! Funny how I live here now but back then I thought it was a nice place to visit but had no idea that I would move my family here in 2005!

This documentary brought back so many memories for me like the huge cameras that guys would walk around with filming girls doing outlandish things, cars with rims, music blasting and let’s not forget the fashions! Back then we wore “Daisy Duke Shorts” that were the hottest things in the 90’s lol. See all the fun we had and Freaknik is streaming on Hulu now! Shout out to Rapper Uncle Luke who I got to meet, he was mad cool!

ABOUT Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told From Executive Producers Luke Campbell, Jermaine Dupri and 21 Savage, and masterfully crafted by Mass Appeal & Swirl Films, Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told is a celebratory exploration of the boisterous times of Freaknik, the iconic Atlanta street party that drew hundreds of thousands of people in the 80s and 90s, helping put Atlanta on the map culturally. What began as a Black college cookout, soon became known for lurid tales of highway hookups and legendary late-night parties that ultimately led to the festival’s downfall. At its height, Freaknik was a traffic stopping, city-shuttering, juggernaut that has since become a cult classic. Rooted deep in its history of Civil Rights, thriving Black leadership, and focus on the uplifting of Black culture and education, Atlanta became the only place a festival like this could grow and thrive. Though it ceased over two decades ago, the infamous legacy still resonates through nostalgia and a new generation’s longing for a care-free platform that celebrates and promotes Black excellence, joy and fortitude.
