About the Artist
Big Freedia was born Freddie Ross in New Orleans, LA. As a child, Ross
gravitated toward music, learning to play the piano at a young age and becoming involved in the local choir. As he got older,
Big Freedia continued his involvement in the choir, eventually becoming the choir's director, certainly a sign of things to
come for this young musician. Music came naturally to Ross, but he had to overcome significant stage fright before feeling
comfortable performing in public.
In 1998, Ross was first exposed to bounce music when attending a show performed by
a drag queen named Katey Red, and his interest in the genre was officially piqued. Adopting the stage name Big Freedia, Ross
then embarked on his own at venues throughout the city of New Orleans. Freedia continued to perform and helped popularize
the genre of bounce music within the hip-hop community of New Orleans.
Big Freedia spent a decade or so in more of an
underground movement before gaining serious recognition in 2009. Since, Freedia has blown up and become a mainstream success,
garnering acclaim and awards along the way. Big Freedia has now expanded to doing national tours with some of the biggest
acts in a variety of genres.
Big Freedia's breakthrough came in 2009 when he began to receive
national recognition for his work and released Big Freedia's Hitz: Vol. 1, a compilation of his most popular underground singles
from the previous decade or so. Since then, Big Freedia has burst onto the national scene, helping to further the bounce movement
within the hip-hop genre and earning him a variety of awards along the way.
