I was just wondering, do y'all believe that you need bigger and heavier weights to be ripped and have more muscle mass ? :) just wanted to ask my peeps

You need to lift at least 60% of your 1RM to get strength and hypertrophy gains. Also, when lifting focus on slow movements with the eccentric (lowering) portion of the lift. That greatly tears more fibers resulting in optimal growth with the combination of good nutrition and sleep.

No I don't think so, because muscle mass is about how you exercise it and not how much you lift. You could lift a lot but if you can't do pull-ups then what's the point. You get what I mean?

You need progressive overload. A big part of this is more weight, combined with more volume.
