The Game

NJ Saggy Pants Ban


6/14/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0613-the-game-gettyA new law banning saggy pants on the Jersey Shore has pissed off a bunch of famous rappers -- including The Game, who tells TMZ, the anti-sag movement is racist ... and tantamount to SLAVERY.

In case you didn't know, the city of Wildwood, NJ just passed a law that prohibits anyone on its boardwalk from wearing pants that sag 3 inches below the hips, exposing skin or underwear. First time offenders are subject to fines ranging from $25-$100 ... and after that, the fines go up to $200.

40 hours of community service is also a possible punishment.

Now, several rappers are speaking out against the law -- Game tells us, "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."

He adds, "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."

Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony tells us, "Are they talking about black people? How can they do that? This is racist and ridiculous."

And for the white guy's perspective ... Mac Miller says, "I just think that's ridiculous because no one has time to do that much community service. I sag and will sag anywhere I go."

The law's scheduled to go into effect next month. You're welcome, Larry Platt.

Not for nothing but sagging pants is not a black thing its a "I wanna look like a stupid jail bird thug"thing. The sagging pants started by inmates not having a belt and their pants not fitting correctly so the pants began to sag. Personally when my son came down stairs with his jeans sagging he was sent up to 1. change them or 2. put on a belt, the reason why I do not want my son to think its ok to want to emblem a jail house thug. I want better for him and I want him to achieve and be someone to look up to and a role model. As for Games statement it goes to show how little respect he has for hi race referring to the young black men as the N word and even less respect for his own mother with the use of language and encouragement of breaking the law. I have taught my son to not embarrasses me using language in public he would not use speaking to me or his grandmother and that if he wants true success in life he should strive to be one level up from where ever he is, and I am proud to say he earns close to 200k a year works 3 days a week from home 2 days in his office and graduated with top honors from his college. He is 28 and everyone who has ever meet me including his boss at a party has stated what a pleasure he is. And his girfriend of the past 10 years has said thank you to me so many times for raising a true man and not a wanna-be. He is in no shape way or form a weak man, a nerd or mommas boy. He stands over 6 ft tall is muscular, into sports, fast cars, and enjoys life to its fullest. I was a single mom at a young age raised him on my own, spent my time on welfare and living in the projects but never did I accept nothing but best from him. He has an 8th degree black belt in ti kwon do and has been training for freestyle fighting for 6 yrs now and trust me I have seen during matches just what that boy can do but I also know he stays on the right side of the law and would never do anything to cause me shame. Seriously Game grow up educate yourself and learn this one important lesson in life if you want to continue to separate races then it is you who causes racism for if we all learn to join the human race instead of being black, white , Latino, Asian etc etc then we are all on the same level once you separate according to race someone somewhere with say this one is better than that one.

Will someone please get this idiot a dictionary? He really needs to learn the definition of "racism" and "slavery". In no way does a dress code constitute either. Get some class you ignorant twit.

Next thing you know, he's going to accuse someone of a hate crime for asking him to take his hat off at a funeral or something.

it's not a racist law just a lewd and lascivious law that requires people to keep their private areas covered which is not at all racist or inappropriate. I have actually seen people sagging so low that I could see their full underwear and between their legs before the tops of their pants and they had to walk with their legs spread wide to keep them from falling to their ankles. I am the farthest thing from a racist or discriminatory of any group in any way, except for Justin Bieber lol, and I don't find it right to walk around with your parts showing when little kids and decent people are walking about. That's not racist that is just courteous. If I want to see your nether regions I will try to get you into bed and if not keep your pants at a respectable level.

OMG! I've been waiting on this topic! First I'd like to say "it's about damn time!" I am part of the hiphop community but more on the very mature side of perspectives. Feeling the extreme disdain for the clueless/lost individuals, wearing there paints/shorts off there ass, provokes my humbleness on the issue. I tell a friend from time to time, that I wonder if the feeling of "...." I feel, is similar to how the older people felt when (we) had a certain way of dressing. Guess I'm getting old. Listen, those individuals make themselves look as if they r walking advertisement for ignorance, ignorance, ignorance, & all the other words u can connect to that. When I'm n a social environment & I c the guys & so-called "hm girls-boy" & u look over & u have elderly people, toddlers, etc, sitting or standn near by & seeing this act of ignorance, I feel sorry them that they half to endure that. Rappers or entertainers that do it...........those clowns are mainly the prblm. I hope the law spread like wildfire. As far as the Game concerned, I'm disappointed n his reaction. To u, GAME, u should b more of positive reflection to those list souls, BUT, it's evident ur lost ur damn self. DEUCES.

I like the saggy pants, it's male cleavage.

And we should ban women from wearing shirts that show cleavage and there stomachs. Not to mention make it a law that you have to be fully clothed and groomed before you leave the house. Hell lets just bring back the pilgrim times fully clothed from neck to ankles. So where does it stop? No I don't like saggy pants but I don't like someone telling how I can dress even more. Ladies walking around in bikini barely there tops.. Where's the law to ban that? Or the booty shorty with there butts hanging out the bottom.. Oh right that's expectable. Where's the law banning that? It's not expectable for children yet no one is passing a law.. So this law is one sided
