Pants Hang Low

Album: Da REAList (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • On this track, Plies is speaking out against a law in some Southern cities which prohibits men from wearing low-slung jeans. He explained to MTV News: "For me, being where I'm from, understanding the legal system and the culture I'm a part of, I felt it was a statement record. They had a situation in Riviera Beach, Florida, not too far from my hometown. It was a group of guys that were harassed and arrested and incarcerated for a fashion statement. I'mma always stand in the forefront and do what I feel is right. The record had a lot of sentimental value to it."
