Dear 100 Hour Board,
What EXACTLY does the phrase "mad props to you" mean? Specifically, what does the word "props" mean and where did it come from?

A: Dear Propmeister,
Board Question #2358
"mad" is just a slang usage intensifier.

A: Dear Maddy,
Yeah, Latro's right. And I would like to point out his exquisite use of formal and informal speech. He throws out "mad props" and then identifies the phrase as a usage intensifier of the vernacular. Isn't it great? Kudos to Latro.
