so i'm curious, is it pronounced the "you-pee" or the "up"? seen this phrase in a couple of comments recently

You pee. But I've never seen it spelled phonetically before, and it's really funny. People from that place are referred to as Yoopers.

But is does just mean the Upper Peninsula, right? I had no idea locals had a pronunciation for the acronym.

It does.
