Boy, 9, Has A Hit With Anti-Sagging Song

September 18, 2012 by  

NEW YORK, (UPI) —  A 9-year-old New York rapper is gaining attention for his anti-sagging song, “Pull Ya Pants Up,” and its accompanying music video.

Amor Arteaga, a Brooklyn boy who raps under the name Lilman, said he wrote the song with his father, Juan, 37, before spending the summer filming the music video, which also features Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

“I’m tired of seeing all these dirty underwears when I am walking down the street. Pull ‘em up!” Amor raps in the video. “Think that you swaggin’ cause your pants saggin’ — Pull ya pants up. Pull ya pants up.”

Armor said he thinks the message of his song is important.

“It’s disrespectful showing your butt off,” the fourth-grader said. “I’m always seeing boys, girls, rappers, singers — everyone is sagging out.”

Armor, whose song has proven popular on YouTube and local radio stations, said his next song will speak out against violence and bullying.

“There’s too many shootings. Even little people like me are getting killed,” Amor said. “I see a lot of different things on the news. We gotta stop the killings.”
