Celebrity Twitter Pics…Drake Parties With Big Freedia, Dines With La La Anthony

Rap superstar Drake and the Queen Of Bounce Big Freedia were photo’D out and about at a club in New Orleans, where Drake came to town to record the video for his monster hit, “In My Feelings”.

Drake is no stranger to N.O., hometown of his mentor, Lil Wayne.

He’s also no stranger to Big Freedia: Drake used Freedia’s vocals on his track “Nice For What.” Drake reportedly wasn’t gonna slide in and out of New Orleans without saying wassup to Freedia after he snubbed the Bounce artist by not including her in the video in which her vocals were featured.

Big Freedia fans were vocal about the snub, and pointed out that Beyonce also did not include Freedia in her “Formation” video after using Freedia’s vocals in the song.

In an interview with HuffPost, Big Freedia admitted the snubs “hurt”, but that she was happy to be part of a major project–and to get that coveted check.

“I’m getting more recognition and, you know, everything is not always visual. I tell people all the time, “I may not be in the video, but as long as that check came, I’m good, I’m OK!”

Freedia went on to candidly point out that being an openly gay man in the rap game still poses a challenge when it comes to her working with bigger named artists.

But everything seems cool between Freedia and Drake, who also had dinner with La La Anthony, Carmelo’s estranged wife, before leaving town.

The two reportedly arrived separately at the Oceana Grill, but dined together–and left together.
