Even if you don't know Bounce music by name, you most likely know it by sound. Originating out of New Orleans, it's heavy hip-hop incorporating chanting or call and response that you can't help shaking your booty to. Let's not forget that Big Freedia holds the world record for getting the most people to twerk simultaneously.
Now, Big Freedia is sharing her story in "Big Freedia: God Save The Queen Diva!" which was released July 7. In it, she talks about how she became famous, not an easy feat when you are a gay rapper. The book talks about how Bounce music made her stronger and more self-confident, and how you can do the same. It's a fun read for sure, but it also has heart.
