Not a fan of men wearing their pants below their hips? You're not alone. Hundreds of grandmas, assistant principals, and a nine-year-old boy in Brooklyn are on your side.

Young Amor Artega of Flatbush is not a fan of large jeans, so much so that he wrote and performed a rap video about it, the New York Daily News reports. "Pull Ya Pants Up" argues the merits of wearing yours high and tight, and was written over the summer by Amor and his father Juan.

"Think that you're swagging cause your pants sagging," raps Amor, who goes by the handle "Lilman." "Pull ya pants up!”

The four minute video even features Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, hanging out at Borough Hall while Amor spits his conscientious rhymes. You can check it out below.
