"South Cleveland Style" refers to the act of throwing objects that not be commonly thrown, or something that is fragile, and then caught by another person.
This term originated in the southern area of Cleveland, Tennessee when someone threw a glass pipe to another friend. The person catching the pipe said "Thats crazy! What if it broke!" The thrower of the pipe only said "Thats how we roll in South Cleveland, that's South Cleveland Style."
Years later, a person saying "South Cleveland" was used to infer that they were about to throw something to another person, or a recognition to throw something to them.
This term originated due to the oddities of the people who live in South Cleveland.
