Big Freedia

from New Orleans Louisiana
Unknown - Confirmed: Sep. 18, 2013 (Awaiting Update)
Big Freedia (pronounced “FREE-da”), known as the Queen of Bounce, is at the forefront of the Bounce rap movement (a subgenre of hip-hop born out of New Orleans, known for its call and response style and lightening speed booty-shaking dance). Performing five out of seven nights in any given week
with dancers she calls The Divas, Big Freedia’s show is nothing short of dazzling. She tours every city in America from New York to San Francisco and is always a favorite at festivals such as Electric Forest, Hangout Fest, FunFunFun Fest, SXSW, and Bonnaroo, among many others.
Though gay and proud, Big Freedia asserts that her (Freedia is a man, but uses the feminine pronoun for her stage persona) sexuality has little to do with her music. “I don’t see myself as a gay artist, but rather an artist who happens to be gay.”
Freedia also rejects the term Sissy Bounce (the queer brand of Bounce). “All Bounce is Bounce,” he insists. “There’s no need to separate it out. All types of people—gay, straight, rich, poor, black, white come to my shows. People just wanna get out and shake their azzzz and have a good time!” And
therein lies the beauty of Big Freedia: She can rock a pair of dangling gold earrings and light up a blunt and chop it up with the hardest rapper around.
