Big Freedia, known as the Queen of Bounce, is a New Orleans-based rapper and ambassador of Bounce music. A vibrant twist on hip-hop, Bounce music is characterized by call-and-response lyrics over rapid-fire beats and booty-shaking.

After running the New Orleans club scene for over two decades, Big Freedia is now bringing the Bounce movement to a world-wide stage with her hit reality show, «Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce» on Fuse TV. The weekly docu-series follows the life of a gay choirboy turned Bounce rapper and, after 3 seasons, remains the highest rated original series for the network, and after receiving the GLAAD Media Award in 2013, the show was nominated for the award again in 2014. Season 4 will debut on September 30, 2015.

Last year, Big Freedia released his much-anticipated debut LP, Just Be Free. Named one of the 'best electronic releases of 2014' by Rolling Stone, the album was critically acclaimed in outlets such as Pitchfork, SPIN, USA Today, and Consequence of Sound.

Big Freedia maintains a rigorous tour schedule which features his legendary shake team and Bounce dance moves like «the twerk» (popularized by Miley Cyrus in 2013), «the shake» «the wiggle,» «the bend ova,» the «hands on the ground,» to name just a few. He and his shake team are a festival favorite, often known to steal the show at Outside Lands, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Bumbershoot.

In 2012, Big Freedia made his television network debut on «Jimmy Kimmel Live!» He has also appeared on «Last Call with Carson Daly,» «Watch What Happens Live,» NPR's 'All Things Considered,' NPR's 'Marketplace,' and «Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.»

In 2015, Big Freedia penned his first memoir, Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva! on Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster. The book was hailed in the press by outlets from Rolling Stone and Pitchfork to OUT and BUST. A collaboration with pop-vocalist Sia for «Eye of the Needle» was released summer as part of the Adult Swim Series. His second EP, entitled Good Times, will be released the Fall.
