What It Is is a slang phrase popularized in the 1970s as a greeting or as another way to ask an individual about their well-being or general perception of things (similar to "How are you?", "How is it going?" or "What's Up?"). It is a shortening of the greeting, "What it is, what it was, and what it shall be," popular in the 1960s among African Americans.
