Still sagging in baggy pants to hold my hammer
Call it my hammer pants
Y'all Ain't Ready by Horseshoe G.A.N.G (Ft. Livin' Proof)

Saggin” was the term created to describe the popular pant style of letting your pants hang low showing your boxers. It started as a “hood” style and expanded from there.

His hammer is referring to his gun which he keeps inside his pants. The bagginess helps to conceal the weapon.

This is also a reference to MC Hammer and the infamous hammer pants

There could also be a possible reference to the Slaughterhouse song Hammer Dance the hook in this song is
I’m in the club, bottle in my hand doing my two step
While I got my gun in my pants, call it the hammer dance
Bitches dancing on a nigga, when they feel the gun
I tell ‘em we’re doing the hammer dance
Two steppin’ with my weapon on me
You good? I’m just checking, homie
Fam-a-lam, you don’t stand a chance
While I got this gun in my pants doing my hammer dance

Horseshoe Gang is apart of Crooked I’s movement the Circle of Bosses

Look, beard is full, hair is nappy
These jeans ain't mine so they way too baggy
Something From Nothing! by Joe Budden

When you’re struggling to get on as an artist at times you can have absolutely nothing. No home to shave your beard, and no money for a haircut or even a shower to clean up.

Joe had no money for clothes so he was wearing his homies jeans, or a stolen pair that were too big for him.

He’s certainly come a long way.
