Big Freedia Tour Background
Big Freedia was born Freddie Ross in New Orleans, LA and gravitated towards music from a young age. After joining a local choir early on, taking over duties as a choir director at a young age and building his style of music along the way. In 1998, Ross was first exposed to bounce music when attending a show performed by Katey Red, and his interest in the genre was taken to the next level and he soon found himself jumping headlong into the music scene. Adopting the stage name Big Freedia, Ross then embarked on his own at venues throughout the city of New Orleans, playing at all kinds of great local venues and using the stage to help popularize the genre of bounce music within the hip-hop community of The Big Easy.
Big Freedia spent a decade or so in more of an underground movement before gaining serious recognition in 2009, but since then Freedia has blown up and become a mainstream success, garnering acclaim and awards along the way. Though the New Orleans music scene is practically his back yard, he's been hitting up venues all over the country as the genre begins to get more and more popular, with pioneers like Big Freedia continuing to be a positive driving force. Freedia also was noted for spreading bounce music into Texas after he was displaced due to Hurricane Katrina, which began the slow expansion of Freedia's music to sites other than New Orleans.
Big Freedia Greatest Hits
Even though Freedia was a major component of the New Orleans music scene from fairly early in his career, 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. He's also put together studio albums like "Scion A/V Presents Big Freedia" and "Just Be Free," which continued his streak of putting together creative bounce music. But even though listening to album is obviously a great way to hear Big Freedia's music, seeing him first-hand is a completely different experience you just can't duplicate.
