Looks like the Freaknik Doc is getting everybody in hot water.

Legendary producer, Jermaine Dupri has contributed to some of the most amazing moments in music. From discovering Bow Wow to his chart-topping hits with some of music's GOATs, JD has had quite the career. Moreover, Jermaine Dupri sets his sights on the big screen. Currently, Dupri is working on the documentary titled Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told. The doc follows the infamous Atlanta spring break festival Freaknik and how it impacted the city and the South.

While Freaknik has a story that's never been told, most people that attended would like to keep it that way. When word got out that there was a Freaknik documentary in the works, the internet went into a bit of a frenzy. Additionally, many users called out the blatant debauchery amongst the partygoers. Some said that there were going to be a lot of people in trouble for past actions at the festival. However, Jermaine Dupri appeared on the Tamron Hall Show to clear the air. When asked about the documentary and how people were uncomfortable with their past being unwillingly revealed, JD said he'd been awaiting to address these concerns.

Jermaine Dupri Clears The Air

Despite everyone's worries, JD calmed everyone's nerves saying, "My vision of Freaknik is really a story about the South and Atlanta." "It’s not really a story about what everybody keeps talking about," Dupri elaborated. Jermaine Dupri even admitted that he actually doesn't like the freaky parts that surround the history of Freaknik. "I don’t like that part because I feel like it’s a little disrespectful because I’m just telling a story of Atlanta, right? And how Atlanta was built into the place that it is today," he told Tamron Hall.

Not only that, the legendary producer noted that because of the infamous spring break event, it led to people staying in Atlanta. "People came to Atlanta through Freaknik and they stayed. I say that in ‘Welcome to Atlanta.’" he said to the talk show host. "And that’s how Atlanta has become this multi-cultural, multi-city place." Jermaine Dupri stamped the party as one of the biggest roles in making Atlanta a multi-cultural, multi-city place. Did you go to Freaknik? Are you ready for the documentary?
