Yung Miami and Quavo released a single, "Strub Tha Ground," with a music video featuring a Freaknik aesthetic. It matched the upbeat nature of the song. In the music video, Yung Miami wore a custom look by Laurel DeWitt. The custom-made top complemented her lace-up heels, gold jewelry, and a blonde haircut.

Angelo Fuster was a mayor of Freaknik

Freaknik Outfits as the chief of marketing and communications for three mayors of Freaknik, including Sam Massell. He also owns a consulting firm specializing in public affairs and political issues. Fuster was concerned that limiting the event would be perceived as white folks trying to control what the black community does.

While the first decade of Freaknik was relatively adolescent and black Atlantans were largely oblivious to its existence, the next decade saw Freaknik explode in size. In 1993, the festival attracted over 100,000 people, resulting in gridlock down Cascade Street. It was a chaotic scene that rolled through Lakewood, West End, and Piedmont Park.

Though the party eventually ceased, Freaknik continues to inspire academic debates on race and class. Georgia State University communications professor Marian Meyers conducted a study of media coverage of the event. She found that news outlets tended to portray black women as "jezebels," and framed black men as criminals for causing property damage.

Among the many things that made the event so popular was its location. Atlanta's historic black neighborhoods made the area a perfect fit for Freaknik. The festival, held every June, was a place where the black community could hang out. This unique community also served as a venue for music and art performances. Its annual event was a staple of Atlanta's black and hip-hop culture.
