“N***as Should Sag Down To Their Socks”: City In NJ Passes Saggy Pants Ban, Rapper Game Speaks Out Against It
If you are sick and tired of seeing a young man’s Hanes underwear not peeking, but making a grand appearance in front of you as you walk down the street, or you hurt for the man waddling down the street in hopes of keeping his pants up but maintaining his cool at the same time, then you need to go to Wildwood, New Jersey. The city just passed a law that is prohibiting anyone from walking on their boardwalk wearing pants that are sagging three inches below the hips. If authorities see any sign of your back or your crack (or your drawls), you will be fined between $25 as a first-time offender. And if you continue to get caught sagging, you could be fined $200 and possibly be forced to serve community service, a whopping 40 hours.
The law came into action after numerous complaints from residents were sent to Mayor Ernest Troiano, with people saying they would not return to the popular boardwalk the community has if they constantly had to be exposed to people’s underwear. Troiano tells the New Jersey CBS affiliate,
“When you have good families who call you up and say, `I’ve been coming here 20 years, 30 years, 40 years and I’m not going to any longer because I’m not going to subject my children or my parents or grandparents to seeing some kid walk down the boardwalk with their butt hanging out,’ you have to do something.”
And while such a decision is pleasing to some, for others, like rapper Game, it’s just not fair. When speaking with TMZ, he let folks know LOUD and clear that he was against Wildwood, New Jersey’s law, and that he wouldn’t mind helping to pay off people’s fines.
“N***** should sag down to their socks out there. They trying to get people to not sag, please. Can’t tell people how to wear their f***ing clothes. What time are we in? This ain’t the f***ing slave days. F*** that.
I am with the sagging movement. First five people to get fines, I will pay their tickets … I will go there and sag cause I am a sagging Sagittarius.”
His point would probably come across better if he wasn’t cursing like a sailor, but alas, he doesn’t know better. But anywho, what do you think of the ban, as well as Game’s response?
