In the early 00's I use to wear baggy clothing only cause it was common in my surroundings and was the style. So if you wanted to be 'accepted' by the greater community you would have to try and fit in, and fitting in meant wearing baggy clothing. Even we moved out and the neighborhood I moved into didn't have people dressing like that, so I again conformed to it and stopped dressing as such. I was never a thug or claimed to be, I just wore baggy clothing and the idea that I'm automatically a thug because of it isn't right.
In some areas the style is a social norm. Nothing to really deal with being a thug, for some people its also comfortable. A lot of people frown upon it but it's also apart of showing your rebellious side and just not caring.
This has got to be the best question asked on here! I never really understood why guys sag there pants. It looks really dumb, and no one wants to see your Micky Mouse underpants. Don't even get me started on that fake limp they call a thug walk.
