The world will be able to take a closer look at New Orleans-based emcee Big Freedia. The reigning bounce music diva's new reality show, "Queen of Bounce," will premiere this fall on Wednesday, September 18 on Fuse TV. The show will follow Freedia and other bounce artists, including Katey Red, Sissy Nobby, and Mr. Ghetto.
More from the New Orleans Times-Picayune:
"Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce" is one of three new music-focused programs on Fuse debuting this year. On July 24, the network premieres "G-Thing," a show that follows Italian-American rapper G-Fella and his family as they try to launch an independent record label, and "Insane Clown Posse Theater." The latter is a program featuring the infamous clown-faced rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope: the show includes the pair's commentary on new music videos and pop culture phenomena as well as comedy sketches and interviews with special guests. "Insane Clown Posse Theater" previously was available as an online series; this summer, it graduates to the TV screen.
Earlier this year Pitchfork released an intriguing 27-minute documentary on Big Freedia. Check it out if you haven't already. Seems like it's just a taste of what's to come this September.
