Katey Red Recalls Meeting Big Freedia For The First Time

FUSE TV - Katey Red Recalls Meeting Big Freedia For The First Time

There would be no Big Freedia without Katey Red. That might sound like an exaggeration, but it's the truth! She was the first queer bounce rapper ever, totally changing the scope of a regional genre. She's largely the reason Freedia fell into the world of bounce in the first place and is a major player in Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. If you've seen the show, you know Katey Red is all personality and fun. We sat down with the rapper to figure out exactly what makes her tick. Divarish!
