T.I.'s First Day of Freedom

Bring on the Southern FEAST!!!

It's only been a few hours since T.I. was officially declared a free man -- and his family is already throwing together a "welcome home" party for the ages ... filled with mountains of Southern-style cooking.

As we previously reported, T.I. was released from an Atlanta halfway house early this morning -- and we're told his aunt and wife whipped up a bomb-ass celebration dinner ... featuring a family-recipe mac 'n cheese, fried and BBQ chicken, fish, ribs, collard greens, salad, and RED VELVET cake.

It's going down any minute now -- and we're told the entire to-do will be potluck style ... with all of T.I.'s close friends and family bringing over even more food.

Consider this feast round 2 -- T.I. celebrated with a similarly soulful meal about a month ago on his way to the halfway house ... before he was thrown back in prison.

Watermelon is delicious and refreshing and is served at most southern style cookouts. Unfortunately, watermelon is the only healthy thing these folks eat. The collard greens and kale that they make is cooked in a ton of bacon fat because the actual taste of the healthy raw vegetable without the fat is clearly like kryptonite to some. Atleast they are keeping the drug companies in business.
