Big Freedia is the larger-than-life ambassador of New Orleans Bounce music with a knack for entertainment and a surprising net worth.

Known for her work in hip hop and Big Freedia Bounces Back, Big Freedia, who goes by he and she pronouns (with a preference for she), has made a name for herself over the years and has begun to be known as the larger-than-life ambassador of New Orleans Bounce music. She’s also known for her infectious energy and personality and has branched out into other areas outside the music and entertainment industries.

Big Freedia has been making music since 1999, and has made guest appearances on shows such as RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and Nailed It! She even released a book called Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva! in December 2020, in which Out Magazine says that Freedia’s tales pop as much as the booty that made her famous.”

Her next venture will be Hotel Freedia, which will be a boutique nightclub and hotel located on Decatur and Frenchmen streets in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. There is no confirmed date of when it will open, but the hope is for it to be ready for guests for Mardi Gras 2024.

From entertainment to business, Big Freedia has done a lot to increase her net worth. Despite her net worth being impressive, it may be less than some people think.
