look up any word, like yeet:
The length of a black person's cornrows on their neck. If thier braids don't reach AT LEAST their midneck, then they have no 'hang time'. If they've been growing their hair for more than three years and don't have hangtime they need to wear weave or cut thier hair off.
'Yo, that fool been growing his hair for five years and he still ain't got no hangtime. He just needs to cut that shit off.'

"Hang time" is a term used by skateboarders and snowboarders to describe the amount of air they catch off a feature.
"Hey Jeremy, I'm starting to get more hang time above the couping!"

"Did you see the air I got off that side hit? Bet I have enough hang time to do a fs 360 crail!"

The same basis of Milky Juice's definition, but in Football, the amount of time after the ball is punted, and before it hits the ground.
And he has punted the ball...straight into outer space! Sorry folks, we can't continue the game until the ball hits the ground and we can stop the hangtime counter, and by the looks of it, the football is heading into the sun...
