the "oof" is the sound effect that plays when you die in a game called Roblox which was a meme a while ago.
Q: What does "big up" mean?
A:
Good question. Although they are similar in that both are nouns and they're both often used to evaluate someone else, they do not have the same meaning. THUMBS UP is just for showing approval, whereas BIG UP is for showing respect, which is not exactly the same as approval.

No, I wouldn't consider "big up" a buzzword because it's been in use within the hip-hop community since more than 25 years ago. Also, it is certainly not a common expression outside of hip hop culture. If someone uses it, they are most likely into hip hop or hang out with such people.

Finally, there is no "big down," but I can see why you would think so.
Q: What does But not one that's as big. mean?
A: "I have a dog like that at home, but not one that's as big."
My dog is smaller than the one I'm talking about.
