Origin

The word lit has been used for a hundred years. What happens is that in the past it was used to talk about drunks, and today its meaning is quite different.

As with many other words, it was rap and hip-hop that gave rise to the new meaning of lit. In some songs, rappers said that a party was "lit" when it was a cool party.

In 2004, more or less, the word lit transformed its meaning to the current one used on the internet or among friends.
