Linguistic aspects: 1) Originally, the noun hype refers to the great use of advertisements and other publicity influencing people everyday; hence the expression I don't believe the hype meaning that I am not a fool who can be easily deceived. 2) Con (or con man) is the abbreviated form for confidence man, i.e. someone who swindles an other by means of a confidence trick (see http://www.thefreedictionary.com/) . Here it is clear that the protagonist doesn't trust his sister's boyfriend at all! 3) A new entry is jack as verb in the expression to jack my style: an informal use, that probably means to raise to a higher level. 4) To conclude, to get one's distance has quite the same meaning of to keep one's distance from somebody/something.
