Right pant leg up.. continued...

The thread was closed so I thought i'd carry this on to another thread. It's true the right pant leg rolled is a street thing that started here in NYC, kids elumating bike messengers, yeah it's true right leg buying left leg selling, but that all started with the messengers who back in the days also peddled "other" things besides packages, kids say thier pants roleed up and it took off from there. I know, I lived it back in the days

ummm... gangster kids have been doing this forever. left leg, crip, right leg, blood. anyone 'urban' doing it, probably doesn't even know messengers exist, they're doing it because it became mainstream hip-hop fashion.

the point seems to be where it came from originally, and this seems to be a correlation/causation dilemma.

A: messengers wear their pants leg pulled up
B: urban black fashion suggests pulling pants leg up
C: B is direct result of A.

wait, what?

pant leg up was also a trick for racking spraypaint and forties down your pants.

The first time I ever say this pant leg thing was back in the 80s and it was the bike messengers and all the others riding BMXs and single speeds that were doing it, Being an urban black kid I did the same as they did and so did all my friends when we rode our BMXs

No it first started with BBallers on the court , then also went to bikers so the pants leg wouldn't get caught in the chainring.

NOPE! I remember it clearly. Where did you grow up at? tights and short just to play street ball, the 70s were over then.

Unless of course they are b-boys from the future.

Y'know the 80's are full of people from the future.

Fox Racing first opened for business in 1974, when Geoff Fox, a Ph. D. who taught physics at the University of Santa Clara, launched Moto- X Fox, a tiny distribution business for European motocross bikes in a 1,500-square foot building in Campbell, California.

Just sayn..
