big freedia*On Sunday, hip-hop artist Big Freedia stopped by Melissa Harris-Perry‘s show to discuss the dance culture in Louisiana and all things bounce.

The “Queen of Bounce” became known from the bounce movement that was born out of New Orleans.

According Freedia, bounce is “an up-tempo, heavy based call-and-response-type music.” The rapper assures us that the bounce is not a new trend but has been around for two decades and has become a integral part of the New Orleans’ culture.

Now he will get a chance to show the world the realities of the bounce music and lifestyle with her own show on the Fuse network “Queen of Bounce.”

With the show, Freedia believes he can “open doors for bounce music to become mainstream,” and to “get people involved with Big Freedia and in my world and in my movement of bounce music and the culture of New Orleans.”
