Where did low pants to see underwear originate?

Report as

The origin of wearing low pants, which is normally known as sagging, is believed to be related with the United States prison system where belts are prohibited. The style was also popularized by hip-hop artists in the 1990s and has slowly become a symbol of cultural awareness among many youth.

It was started in prison by men advertising that they were sexually "available." Since sex in prison between inmates is not allowed these men couldn't put up signs, red lights or openly cruise the yard, so saggy pants was there calling card.
