    "Come catch these hands" is like a new thing ive been hearing. I guess it means to get punched by these hands.

    However if you "catch" a punch it means you blocked it. So telling someone to CTH is like saying "block my punches". Is it meant to be ironic? The insult just doesn't make sense. Asking for a friend.

    You must have not grown up in the inner city, so how 'bout you catch dese hands with that big ol' head of yours'

    Comprende? it's pretty low iq slang designed by children.

    Notice how when fighters lose, they sometimes say, "I got caught"?

    CAUGHT WITH THESE HANDS TO THE FACE BRO.

    Awesome, thanks!

    What about “that shit was tight yo”.
    What does that mean and what does being tight have to do with it?

    I remember being like 5 or 6 and trying to figure out what the fuck does tight mean, and then I was opened to the world of ebonics and never looked back, for realz though.
