Yas gawd, from St. Claude to the Third Ward. The purveyor of pussy-pop, booty-whop and twerking so dangerous, they’ve been known to call the cops (more on this later). A multifaceted performer imbued with the indomitable spirit of her birthplace and artistic stomping grounds in New Orleans, the artist born Freddie Ross has also shared with that city her fair share of tragedy and setbacks, only to re-emerge from the waters of despair once again as undisputed queen of her domain (and in this case the preferred pronoun is “she,” but she doesn’t put too fine a point on it. She lets people please themselves).

Read the rest over at Submerge.
