Phrase signifying the philosophy of "the game," i.e. a pimp must always be up on his game, and a ho must always be down on her business.
"Pimps up, hos down" can be considered an egalitarian worldview.

A pair of imperative commands to be issued during a school lockdown or other mandatory activity involving hiding on the floor. Intended to trap others in the dilemma of either standing up and risking their safety (as pimps would) or staying down and safe while unfortunately implying that they are hoes. More grammatical immediately after a ho has been brought down by tripping, choking, heart attack, drive-by shooting, etc. Also the title of a classic 1999 film chronicling eight American pimps' pimping.
1. School principal: (over PA system) "A suicidal man has been spotted outside school grounds. We ask that teachers initiate standard lockdown procedures."
Teacher: "Okay, I need some of you to sit on the floor along this wall, and--
Aaron: (springing out of school desk seat) "PIMPS UP, HOES DOWN!"
Other students: (to selves) Damn! I might as well find myself a street corner on 8 Mile!
(Aaron dons purple felt hat, crosses arms)

2. (A girl slips and falls on the wet hallway floor)
Aaron: (donning purple felt hat) "PIMPS UP, HO'S DOWN!"
Ho: (getting up) "Asshole."

3. Aaron: "PIMPS UP, HO'S DOWN!"
Ho: (still standing) "That movie's title is punctuated poorly."
Aaron: "GET DOWN HO wait wha-- . . . ?" (Uneasily fingers pimp hat)
