Zumbi, emcee of the hip-hop duo Zion I, presents the official video for "Mind on the Sky" off the mixtape "Zumbi-VS. (Versus)" mixtape.  Zumbi explains the idea behind the project: "I wanted to take the ultra creative landscape of hip hop and crush it down into a microcosm of what I'm feeling.  I'm stretching out over varied styles to challenge myself.  So it's really I vs I."

That's right, Big Freedia the Queen Diva, has been nominated, alongside Lady Gaga, Metallica, Britney Spears, Bruno Mars, Courtney Love, Katey Perry, and many more by MTV O Awards, in the category of Too Much Ass for TV! The winners, which will be announced live on Oct 31 at an awards show, is 100% voter-driven, soooooo please vote!

Big Freedia (pronounced “Free-da”) isn’t a just rapper, or the Queen Diva of Bounce, or a performer extraordinaire. Big Freedia is a movement. Currently on a worldwide “Go Homo Tour,” Freedia is bringing her show and Bounce music — a subgenre of hip-hop born out of New Orleans and known for its lightening speed booty-shaking—to audiences around the globe. Known to prompt sweaty after-parties and dance-floor freak-outs, a Big Freedia show is an experience.
 
Raised on Josephine Street in uptown New Orleans, Big Freedia, born Freddie Ross, was raised by his mother, a hairdresser, and stepfather, a truck driver for Coca-Cola. After years of hard work, the family was able to move to downtown New Orleans, where schools were better and the streets, safer. Freedia—along with his brother Adam and sister Crystal Ross—were immersed in music at home by their mother, who collected Gladys Knight and Patty LaBelle records and often sung aloud around the house.
 
But it was the church choir where a young Freddie flourished. ”My mother made sure I never missed practice,” recalls Freedia. It’s no wonder that by the time he was 18, he wasn’t just a member, Freedia directing the choir.
 
A product of the 80s, Freeida was rocking RUN DMC, Salt ‘n Pepa and Adidas Shell Tops as a teenager. One night in 1991 he heard "Where Dey At" by MC T Tucker, (what many believe to be the first recorded Bounce track) and he was transfixed. When he started backing Katie Red, the original “Sissy Bounce” (a queer brand of Bounce) rapper, Freedia knew Bounce was his calling and the stage where he felt most comfortable.

The Big Freedia movement keeps growing. Last year, he appeared on “Last Call with Carson Daly” and has been lauded in The New York Times, The Fader, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, among many other media outlets. He is releasing a debut EP on Scion A/V label this summer, which is produced largely by  New Orleans beat maker BlaqNmilD. What’s more, he appeared on two episodes of HBO series ‘Treme’ [as himself] and is the subject of a documentary film. Finally, Freedia is in the studio recording her highly-anticipated debut LP, due out Fall 2011.
 
Big Freedia occupies a rare place within the Bounce strata, somewhere between Lil Wayne and Lady Unique. She has the potential to push the genre onto a national stage and into the collective music consciousness, where it belongs. Big Freedia can’t be stopped!
