The exhibition of respect or recognition owed to someone for having performed a certain deed or task worthy of such praise. This is normally exhibited by the giver of the props'raising his fist to knock it gently against the fist of that whom is receiving the 'props'. For extraordinary deeds offering even more than usual praise, "mad props" can be used
"Yo, props for bringing the Air Mattress to the pool, I would've never thought of that."
