Senior Rap Group Claims Responsibility for ‘Pants on the Ground’January 28th, 2010
Is Larry Platt a thief? A Detroit area “senior” rap group wants you to be the judge.
Platt, the 62-year-old American Idol contestant who became an overnight celebrity for his song ‘Pants on the Ground’ has been called out by “The Green Brothers” who suggest that the “intent, idea and message” of Platt’s song was directly taken from them.
The Green Brothers wrote a letter to the Fox News affiliate in Detroit to inform the station of their 1996 recording “Back Pockets on the Floor,” which has a similar cadence and rhythm to Platt’s song. (See the video here)
The Green Brothers posted a video of their song for the public to judge. Remember, “Back Pockets” was recorded 14 years before Platt’s Idol performance.
