This feature is a part of Complex's "Triple F Life" Week.
Let Waka Flocka Flame tell it, the moment he set foot in Atlanta after moving there from Queens he became Southern. His trap anthems and club bangers couldn't have been born anywhere but the South, meaning Waka told no lie. Still, he's able to look at Georgia with double-vision, seeing it as an outsider and insider simultaneously.
We dropped in on Waka and his partners at a Georgia barbecue, a party that exemplified the spirit of Triple F Life, his new album (available now on iTunes). Drinking, good eating, and real talk about the place he calls home—welcome to Waka's neighborhood.
