I'll loosen my jeans if you pick yours up from off the ground. My take on Fashion.

lyrics

Intro:
What?!
I’ll loosen my jeans
If you pick yours up off the ground
Looking like a fool

The O-M-I, N-O-U-S
The O-M-I, N-O-U-S

Chorus:
We must escape from this
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
The haters will always have opinions
So just escape from it
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
Only you should recognize your own limits

1:
It was 1999
I was stuck behind the times
It was time to find a style
Cuz all the kids be trying to clown
And I was trying to be down
And I was dying to find my route
So maybe I could be allowed
to get spot wit a decent crowd
I could possibly see clout
I would obviously be proud
I would shop and see what's out
What was hot in the streets of the south
My jeans I would have them baggy
Hat to the back and sagging
Snapping with naps and passing
Adamant raps with black kings, coming of age
I've come to the stage where I'm running the place
Scolding hundreds of fakes
In the commons throwing lunch in the face of presumptuous punks
Saving face for rep
Tu sabes mi estilo
con mi ropa muy traquilo
Comprando con mis primos, enseñandome las modas
Toma! Cada vez en Nueva York
I was hitting crazy malls, baby boy raiding the greatest stores
Baggy all the more, now there's crazy adversaries
Clearly, for switching it up, I'm a rare breed

Chorus
We must escape from this
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
The haters will always have opinions
So just escape from it
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
Only you should recognize your own limits

2:
I will admit it's risky, but I gosta spit what's in me
The skinny on the skinny, if you spot it you will then see
It's existed since beginning the clocks amidst the centuries
I amended my destiny when I rocked my first thin jeans
The monsters quip it's ending
Hip-Hop image is shifting
From the modest gift of kicking
The hottest shit and dishing the positive
We missing a lot of it in this scene
We gotta get the pristine
dominance of bending
the minds of kids descending from the moms and it's depending on the confluence
Twisting the style of life and blending
Denounce the hype that's tempting
Pronounce the right of lifting
The enemies of conviction to a new way of living
Loose, fitted, baggy, skinny, beauty's only skin-deep
My penchant is for sending my deepest thoughts on unity
Truthfully, why cringe on how powerful the youth could be?
There's too much lunacy, let's move for peace

Chorus
We must escape from this
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
The haters will always have opinions
So just escape from it
There's no debating it
You rock it baggy or skinny, no one's changing it
You gotta do what you feel, how you feel, when you feel it
Only you should recognize your own limits

Breakdown:
Still doing my
Thing till the dawn
Nothing left to do but keep singing my song

Still doing my
Thing till the dawn
Nothing left to do but keep singing my song

Still doing my
Thing till the dawn
Nothing left to do but keep singing my song

Still doing my
Thing till the dawn
Nothing left to do but keep singing my song
