    Re: phrases

    Diss = treat, mention, or speak to rudely.

    air guitar = an imaginary guitar that one pretends to play; the action of pretending to play a imaginary guitar.

    Cheetos = a brand of junk food, equivalent to potato chips in nutritive value.

    Hook it up-- this could have several meanings, for which I would need more context; but basically, it means 'connect something with something else', I think.
