That's what's up

"That's what's up!" is a very popular saying among youth and some "hip" older people. This saying usually is associated with a minor or major accomplishment by a friend, such as, "Wow, your new car is nice. That's what's up!" It also applies when you hear about something that's going to benefit you, such as, "You're telling me I can get a Big Mac for $1. Now that's what's up!"
