“Check the fit, fam,” says one ultra-cool young person to another.
“Dang son, you drippin,” replies the other, “Bet.”
What can we make of this exchange? We have observed the usage of “fam” and “bet” in other contexts. What is this “fit”? And what could the youth mean by “drippin?”
Fit is easier to make sense of – it’s a shortening of outfit. It can relate to carefully selected streetwear or even a digital wardrobe in a video game.
Drip or dripping is a way to compliment another by remarking on the absolutely superb quality of their clothing or accessory selection. Synonyms are fab, trill, and swag (don’t worry, we’ll cover these, too). So the next time you check your fit, ask yourself: do I drip today?
