  • Your title doesn't reflect your question! – StoneyB Dec 16 '18 at 16:28
  • why? @StoneyB I am asked about what is the different between hit me and hit me off then my title said " hit me vs hit me off in english american what are its different?" – simon Dec 16 '18 at 16:30
  • The body of your question asks about hit me up. ... and by the way, we ask "What is the difference between X and Y?" – StoneyB Dec 16 '18 at 16:31
  • ah okay I wiil edited again my question – simon Dec 16 '18 at 16:34

"Hit me up" here is slang for "call me." The whole line says "because you have my phone number, you can and should call me on the phone."

  • so then for example with my girlfriend could I say her "hey dearling hit me up I miss you a lot"? note: she is from california – simon Dec 16 '18 at 16:35
  • You can say many things to a girlfriend, even one from California, but I suggest that you avoid slang. It is way too easy to use slang in a way that has an inadvertent meaning or for it to be misunderstood by the listener. I'd stick with "dearling" though; few women that I have known well would not be charmed by that term, provided that it comes from an appropriate person. – Jeff Morrow Dec 16 '18 at 17:42
