Big Freedia – “Y’all Get Back Now” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Booty-clap pied piper and Sissy Bounce emissary Big Freedia has spread awareness of her gender-bent rap amalgamations far beyond their New Oreleans origin, though it’s only with next week’s Scion A/V-presented self-titled EP that Freedia, and the Bounce genre at large, is seeing a proper national release. It is also Freedia’s first release of all-original material. Priming the pump for that is this new video for her live staple “Y’all Get Back Now,” directed by Bob Weisz and Josh Ente. It’s as playful, vibrant, colorful, green-screened and full of back as an Eric Wareheim/Major Lazer production, though rather than Skerritt Bwoy’s oversized face hovering over the proceedings it’s Big Freedia making like Godilla(zz) everywhere.
