With the good response that Freaknik: The Musical received this week, I couldn’t help but think of another animated show on Adult Swim that had a rapper’s co-sign. In 2007, David Banner helped create the show That Crook’d ‘Sipp. Here’s a quick summary:
The Beauregard family, much like their Mississippi mansion, is falling apart. Relics of the Old South, this dysfunctional clan sits in stark contrast to the modern crunk-fueled Dirty South that has grown up around their crumbling estate, Frenchman’s Bend.
And if you find the art style here familiar, you’re not mistaken. While the pilot for That Crook’d Sipp was to originally receive 6 additional episodes, that plan was later scrapped in order to create Freaknik: The Musical.
