Freaknik is not coming to play about their business and this includes possibly suing 21 Savage and his camp. According to their official IG account, they trademarked the name with the intent to block anyone from using the name illegally or making money off of the name or its likeness.
21’s Freaknik themed birthday party was completely star studded. I really wish I could have been there. According to the official Freaknik Instagram, they reached out to 21 Savage’s manager Meezy and offered them to use the license for free as long as they were acknowledged. That obviously didn’t happen and now there are issues.
Saw @21savage and @megameezy #Freaknik21 last night at @underground_atlanta and looked like a super dope event. Sucks we gonna have to sue them when all we asked that they acknowledged us since it was a free event and they declined 🤦🏿♂️🤷🏿♂️ pic.twitter.com/a3YeoK3Uq8— FreakNik Festival (@FreaknikFest) October 24, 2021
I can see this situation is going to get really, really sticky.
Spending over a million to revive a brand, fighting negative public perception and proving we can do it 2 years with no issues, comes at a cost. We can't let others just infringe on that. So know when you hear them talk about we tried to work it out very easily beforehand 😔— FreakNik Festival (@FreaknikFest) October 24, 2021
