// Queens //
(adverb) To do something well.

Used to signify that someone has done a good job.

Marcus: Yo the Bulls be representin’!  They killin’ it!

DeRon: They ain’t got nothin’ on the Pistons, man.

Marcus: What?? Nigga what you smokin’?  Da Bulls is da bomb!

The slang term “represent” is very similar to the original meaning.  It is used in Queens to signify that someone has gone well beyond expectations when doing something.  For example, if someone says that a basketball player “represented”, they mean that the player played hard and scored a lot of points for their team.

Master P demonstrates the meaning of the word in his song “Represent”.
