Prince was the exact opposite of any sagging pants phenomenon. The sagging pants fad seems to say "I'm ashamed of my ass, and I'm gonna completely hide it under 6 sizes too big jeans and xxxl tshirts", whereas Prince proudly displayed the ass as one of his best features. It was trademarked as much as the heels, and the makeup, the immaculately coiffed 'dos, and the freakishly funky music. He never shied from his feminine side because he had an equally aggressive machismo going on. I don't think anyone else could have carried that off quite like Prince. Anyway, seems to me Prince was the antithesis of the whole sagging jeans aesthetic... and the 400 pound guy in a track suit aesthetic for that matter lol Nowadays he's more conservative fashion wise, but still just as sharp as he can be.

Yes, but his ass isn't halfway up his back like most saggers.

This picture explains it in the hispanic community:

I saw some guy on CNN explaining the sagging pants phenomena- apparently it originated in jail so that men who wanted their asses up for grabs could let the other know- by letting their pants sag. Which is kinda fun when guys want to be tough and hard go around with their pants saggin, really they're letting men know their ass is up for grabs- but I don't think they know that. eek
