Ripped vs Mass

Ok, so me and this guy at work got into a conversation about being ripped over body mass.
I always thought the less weight and more reps you do makes your more cut?
And the more weight less reps makes you larger?

I remember all I used to do was my body weight and I was ripped like a brick shit house, but maybe im wrong..

Can I get some clarification on this?

Weight is relative to the number of reps, but high reps are for burning calories/muscular endurance, and low reps facilitate strength and lean tissue growth. Regarless of your rep range, you should always go as heavy as possible for the given number of reps. Failure is the only option.

Amen...I try and go 1 past failure every time (on spotted excercises).

You can get ripped with heavy weights and a nice diet btw.
