Like I said prior, Things either progress or simply fall out of style and existence. Video games for example, look NOTHING like they do now, they've advanced. We've traded high tops for low fades, and jeri curls for dreadlocks and "natural" styles (imo its not natural, its just nappy). When I was in high school, we sagged our pants a pinch. As a matter of fact, we sagged our pants JUST ENOUGH to show the name on the bands of our underwear (Tommy Hillfiger was the ish around this time). Lets fast forward to today and we have...

Some may say "naw mayne, we just dressing how whatever rapper is dressing, its a style dawg". I listen to rap, and most rappers either are, or claim to be, felons long before they began rapping. The movie Notorious, about the rapper Biggie Smalls, showed that that's where he had the time to develop his awesome lyrical skills, inside his cell. Speaking of progression, we went from
You may be saying "naw bruh, we dress like this cuz we tryna "catch". Ive also seen prostitutes dressed like this because they too were trying to "catch".
Earlier I mentioned video games, and games I played in my younger years, and progression. So instead of those simple games like red light green light, IT and games of that nature, the youth (and grown ups as Ive noticed) are planking.
