The sound of a shotgun explosion. The word originated in 80's gang culture but first appeared in popular media when the LA rap group Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. issued their debut single “Coming Hard to America” in 1988 followed by their first album New Funky Nation in 1990. However, the term didn’t begin to receive universal popularity until fellow LA rappers Cypress Hill released their debut album Cypress Hill in 1991, which used the term “Boo-yaa” liberally and sold more than two million copies on its way to becoming one of hip-hop’s classic albums. Later, the term would become known as a general shout of exuberance.
Lettin' out a bullet, this is going boo-yaa,
you're stuck in my hood, so what ya gonna do now?
-Cypress Hill, "Hand on the Pump" (1991)

Boo-yaa! That stock is a definite buy!

Most likely from the spanish word "bulla" (pronounced boo-ya) meaning "racket" (in the sense of a lot of noise).

Earliest documented use of the word thus far: Used by the Latino hip-hop group Cypress Hill on the album Cypress Hill, which was released on August 13, 1991.

Originally used in the same way as "BANG! GOTCHA!", the definition has expanded with popularity and is most commonly used as an exclamation of triumph, in the same way as "Gotcha," or "So there!" or "Hah!".
Partial Lyric from "Hole in the Head" by Cypress Hill

Madman gonna get cha, quick with the cuente
See a gang, no there ain't no jugete
Rollin like a pyscho with the windows rolled down
Who you lookin at, you tryin to fade me clown?
Plato, si mon, you want static
When you reach for your gat to load your automatic
(Boo-yaa!!) Spittin out buckshots
Homey say blood claat, so you can call a pig
Cause no one could handle, I wind up, and loco
Insane in the brain, you get the bullet and

Originates from African cultures. Boo-yaa was a soup BASE made for leftover foods.

In the 80's and 90's a mixture of free BASE cocaine, the residuals found at the bottom of the screen, and the resin from the pipe collected together- a collection of leftovers - was smoked. The smoker would then exhale and exclaim, "boo-yaa"
We knew he got a good hit when he exclaimed, "boo-yaa".
