“General” Larry Platt isn’t the first person to sing about crooked hats and droopy pants — and now a Michigan hip-hop duo is saying “Pants on the Ground” is a “take off” of a song they recorded back in 1996.

The Green Brothers — a rap group consisting of an elderly Platt-alike gentleman — re-posted the music video for their song “Back Pockets on the Floor” this week — and you’re gonna be shocked at the similarity. The group claims their lift-up-your-pants jam has “the same intent, idea and in part the same message” as the “American Idol” wannabeen’s.

According to MyFoxDetroit, Gerald Green says the group “wishes Platt well” … they just want their version heard too.
