No one knows lol.... It's funny that he doesn't know that wearing your pants like that means you're available for gay sex, and swag stands for "secretly we are gay"

Fact: In some states, it is illegal to wear your pants low, and you can get a fine.

It is a style that should have died out in 1995, about when it started. Will it never end?! I hate looking at people's dirty drawers..

My grandson is 13 also, I am not having it. I will stomp him until the police places me under arrest. I don't mind going to jail. I need a break from paying bills anyway. And when I get released, I will stomp him again. You are the grandparent. Not him.
Report as
I hate the style, but the stomp is a redneck dance, I hate that too.

Not a gang thing. Although it has it's origin in gangs. If you're white I'd tell him to pull his pants up (not being racist, its a part of black people's culture now apparently)

he must b trying to find himself. swag is more of a way of being. if you got swag your projecting " coolness" like "I'm the man" kind of walk. wearing pants low started yrs ago kinda like a modern hippy type way to dress. he's probably following the crowd and will figure out its cooler to do his own thing my kids never did it. thank goodness
