Allegedly Kanye West’s NSFW “Freaknik” video has resurfaced online just adding fuel to the conversation that Hulu’s documentary will for sure expose a few aunties and uncles in their prime.
According to HNHH No Jumper tweeted the video on Monday. The video appears to show Kanye West at a twerk contest.
Multiple women are shown in bikinis while surrounded by a crowd of people.
Subsequently, West is seen filming multiple women from behind while they dance in front of him. Many Twitter users found West’s deadpan reaction while filming the women to be humorous.
Meanwhile, others expressed a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era.

Dont beleive the hype
After analyzing the video, a small number of commenters have challenged the video’s veracity.
The person in the clip is obviously Kanye.
However, some internet sleuths have questioned if the event was indeed Freaknik.
Online detectives have pointed out that the original Freaknik was shut down in 1999.
In the clip, Kanye West is wearing the same polo and jeans combo he made iconic during the College Dropout years.
Moreover, the men around West are wearing tall tees and baggy shorts. Indeed, the fashion trends seem to be more aligned with the early 00s than the late 90s.
Additionally, the kind of cell phone West is filming with was not widely available at the time. Subsequently, some Twitter users have speculated that the video actually comes from a later event at Texas Kappa Beach.
