Amine Will Wear One Pair of Pants for His Entire Tour and He’s Got a Good Reason Why
Aminé kicked off his Tour for You on Friday night (Oct. 6), and in doing so started a dope tradition that will last the entire city-to-city jaunt. According to the 2017 XXL Freshman, he will rock the same pair of pants for every show of his 25-town tour.
Wait. What? The rapper explained the method to his madness on Twitter. "I'm wearing one pair of pants for the whole tour adding a unique patch for every city," he wrote. "I'm bring 1 fan on stage every show to write on their city's patch."
The "Caroline" rapper started his tour in Seattle, who kicked off the new trend by making a straightforward statement about the current President of the United States. "Seattle started the adventure of #TheTourPants with 'Fuck Trump, 206.' Salt Lake City is next," he added, showing off the first addition.
By the end of the tour, there's no telling what all will be pinned to the rapper's pants. Either way, he plans to keep the jeans as a keepsake. "I'll have these pants forever after the tour ends, imma show them to my grandkids' grandkids," he added on Twitter.
We just hope he gives them a wash between shows.
