21 Jun SoulTrain.com Profile – Big Freedia
It’s pretty interesting how exactly Freddie Ross, a.k.a. Big Freedia, became the face of New Orleans-based bounce music. Beginning his career as a backup dancer and singer for then mentor Katey Red, the “Queen Diva” is now the star of Fuse TV’s biggest reality show, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. As the show marks its second season this month, Big Freedia is also set to drop her first full length album Just Be Free. Featuring the single “Explode,” the project comes as his professional profile grows larger and personal life changes.
In this SoulTrain interview, Big Freedia discusses the recent death of his mother, season two of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, Just Be Free, if his collaboration with Diplo will see the light of day and more.
