Hip-hop pants - 9 Interesting and Fun Fashion Facts

A popular clothing trend with hip-hop artists—baggy pants—was born in the prisons of Los Angeles, where inmates were not allowed to wear belts. The trend got so popular on the outside that governments in North American began to pass laws prohibiting the revealing style. As a result low-riding pants were banned on transit systems, airlines, and in government buildings like schools. In 2007, the town of Delcambre, Louisiana passed an indecent exposure by-law prohibiting low-riding pants.
