A word made from legitimate shortened by kids because they think they are "cool" saying legit.

Legitimate really means, according to law, lawful, or/and legal.
It does not mean cool, tight, or amazing.
1) wow those shoes are so legit! can i borrow them sometime?
2) maybe i would let you borrow them if you stop saying legit, you sound stupid.

1. Short for the word legitimate, not fake. The real deal.

2. It can refer to something as high quality, stellar, or top notch. Saying that party was legit does not mean the same as saying that party was cool. Legit adds on more value to the context by expressing the fact that the party may have involved great music, beautiful women, and an overall great time and in no such way was a let down.

3. Legit can also in context to refer to a good deal.
1. "These nike's are legit, not that bullshit you find off the internet."

3. "Yo I traded my shitty pokemon cards for 5 holographics."

"That's legit yo!"
