Kris Kross’ Mac Daddy Explains Why He Still Wears His Pants Backwards | Hip-Hop Media Training (NEW) – Yahoo! Music
“Kris Kross was known for wearing their pants backwards. Where did that come from?
It was kind of a collective idea. We was all just sitting around thinking of something to do different. It probably could have been Jermaine that said, “Hey let’s put our pants on backwards.” I was the first one to do it, and I’m still the last one to still be doing it. We went to the mall and got so much attention. We was like, “Ok, this is it.’” And it just went from there.
How uncomfortable was it to wear your pants backwards?
I don’t know. Everybody always ask me that. But you have to understand I’ve been wearing my pants backwards for 21 years. Really since ‘91 ‘cause we started a year before we even came out with a record. When I wake up that’s how my pants get put on.
Are you saying that you’ve continued to wear you pants backwards all these years?
Yeah. I’ve worn my pants backwards since 1991; never frontwards.
If you go back to 1991, did people tell you you were crazy for wearing your pants backwards?
Yeah. Yeah. And you know people today are like, “Well, I can’t believe you still wear your pants backwards.” Even if I put on a suit, I put my suit pants on backwards. It’s just a way of life for me.”
