Waka Flocka Flame

It’d be hard to find a physical embodiment of trap music more appropriate than Waka Flocka Flame. At 6-foot-3 and crowded with ink, the Atlanta rapper is a strong spokesman for this booming and hectic music. A forerunner of the second wave of this Southern rap, Waka Flocka broke through on 2010’s Flockavelli, musing heavily over colossal faux-strings and unstable snares. Flocka is not a lyricist as much as a stylist; like Vito Corleone in The Godfather, it’s not about what he says as much as how he says it. But his tales of hard Georgia living have entrenched trap as one of the South’s greatest cultural exports of the early 21st Century (up there with Karen Russell’s fiction and the 2014-2015 Atlanta Hawks). With Gucci Mane in jail until Spring of 2017, Waka Flocka Flame may be the eminent trap lord of the sunbelt states. With Ben G, DJ Duecepop, Thrashers!, DJ WHOO Kid.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
