If someone asked you in the chat or in person "Sup? " who wants to know what's going on " respectively how you are" and "What you are doing". "Sup" is the abbreviated form of the English "What‘s up?“

While the English phrase “What's up?” Was called out as long as possible as “Wazzup” in the early 2000s, nowadays it is more often reduced to a minimum with a short and terse “Sup?”.

“Sup?”, “What's up?” Or “Wazzup?” Can be like “What's up?” But also simply as a greeting itself be used. As well as simply answering the question “How are you?” “And yourself?” Is used as a counter-question or greeting.
