9 Year-Old Boy has a hit with anti-sagging song
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.
“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.
