What does Props mean?

Props equals Recognition

When you want to show respect or admiration for someone, you might use the slang term ‘Props’. It’s kind of like saying, “I see you and I appreciate what you’re doing.” It’s a way to give recognition or esteem to another person, almost like you’re figuratively propping them up.

This term is used a lot in casual conversations, particularly among younger people. For example, if your friend Alex made a great play in a basketball game, you might say, “Props to Alex for that awesome shot!” Here, you’re giving Alex props, or recognition, for his skills.

It’s important to note that ‘Props’ is not meant to be taken literally. You’re not physically propping someone up, but rather, you’re lifting their spirits or boosting their ego with your words of praise. It’s all about showing respect and letting people know that they’re valued and appreciated.

So, the next time you want to give someone a pat on the back or a thumbs up, consider using the term ‘Props’. It’s a cool and casual way to show your admiration and respect. And who knows, you might even get some props in return!
