Where Did Pant Sagging Come From?

It is said that the style of saying pants generated within the prison system. The trend was brought into prisons, where oversized uniforms were issued without belts to prevent suicide and their use as weapons. This style spread through rappers and music videos from the ghetto to the suburbs and around the world. It has also been publicly televised and even looked upon as an acceptable way to dress in rap/pop culture.


  1. Sagging pants also has a history in slavery, where masters would not allow males to wear belts as a way to degrade them. May people do not know this part of history.

  2. Where is any evidence of this any where?
