A t-shirt was given to me as a present by a friend of mine. There is a cherokee chief head image and a text on it which is written "ILL OR NAH". I am hesitating about wearing it because i do not know its meaning. Does anyone know what it means.
This is what I thought originally
'Nah' is a distorted 'no'. The whole phrase is a vulgar version of saying 'Are you ill?' or 'Are you crazy?', used to start a conflict.
But this is totally wrong, see Janus Bahs Jacquet's comment for the answer.
According to his comment that I totally agree with the meaning is: It's cool, isn't it? or Is it cool or not?
In this case, ill = sick, cool, awesome see urban dictionary for ill http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ill
and nah = 'or what', 'no', 'not' http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Nah
There are series of t-shirts with 'or nah' funny distorted phrases, for example:
- You got a bae or nah?
- You mad or nah?
- Do you even lift or nah?
- Hype or nah?
- Or nah?
