Laurie I have been observing this for well over a decade. It is a distictive ghetto walk, akin to Eubonics, an identity of pride I believe.

This is not a recent phenomenon, it has been going on for decades. I think that they think it looks cool, although, some of them look like they have some kind of neurological problem.

I believe it’s known as a ‘pimp roll’. It began in the 70’s as a result of ‘blacksploitation’ movies. It’s a way of ‘parading’ in public and showing outward confidence and being ‘cool’.
