New Orleans bounce icon, Big Freedia returns to the musical fray with ‘Bigfoot’ her new single from Central City, her first formal LP in nine years, available on June 23 courtesy of Queen Diva Music.
In her new song, Freedia steps all over the competition atop a speaker-rattling beat as she declares “Call me Bigfoot stepping on these bitches necks.” “I got a big foot but I’m getting bigger checks/They don’t see what’s coming next/You already know the rest/I got a big foot stepping on these bitches necks.”
In a statement about how she believed Central City will introduce a new era for bounce music, Freedia (born Freddie Ross Jr.) said “Bounce has been through many iterations — from Triggerman to Sissy to Cash Money Bounce — but my new album is something I call Bigga Bounce. Welcome to Central City, y’all, where I pay homage to my city, my roots, hip-hop, and to the art of creating a new sound.”
Central City will feature several collaborations, including Lil Wayne, Faith Evans, Ciara, Kamaiyah, Kelly Price, the Soul Rebels, Sonya, and Boyfriend.
