Evolved to common usage for any item of high quality. However, in typical usage, the article "the" is required to denote superiority. Without the word "the" prefacing the word "shit," a different, usually negative, meaning applies.
His new car is the shit./His car is excellent.
This joint is shit./This is poor quality marijuana.
His new car is shit./His new car is not desirable.
