I'll tell you EXACTLY what it is:

It's the word dujour of the hip-hop community. Every so often, hip-hop must introduce a new word or phrase (or "phrizzase" in their parlance) for I suspect one main reason:

(There is, I also suspect, a possible secondary reason: they can't come up with a word to fit a rhyme scheme or rhythym pattern. I'll give hip-hoppers some credit (their "propers") and assume this reason is rare.)

THEY HAVE NOTHING OF ANY INTEREST TO SAY.

Seriously, almost EVERY hip-hop song can be reduced to "hey, let's have a party" or "hey, let's engage in some questionable activity", e.g., sex, drugs, or booze.

If they didn't come up with new words to say the exact same thing, it would be blindingly obvious to their fanbase that they are, in fact, repeating themselves and have been for YEARS.

crunk
1) (adj) Hype, phat. "Tonight is going to be crunk" -- ??.
2) (adv) To get crunk: to have a good time. "Long as everybody get crunk in the drop" -- Lil Bow Wow (Bounce with me [2000]).

If Lil Bow Wow says it, it must be cool. Or phat. Or crunk. Whatever.

Oh honey, if you think that having parties and engaging in questionable activities is not of any interest, then you just need to get out more. I'm not saying tthat Hip hop is everyone's cup of tea, nor am I saying that there is any deep emotional significance behing the lyrics. But you know what? You can shake your ass to it at parties. That's what hip-hop was made for.

Oh and if you think that ALL rap has no significance you certainly haven't been listening to an Outkast of late. They manage to mix politics and rap in quite an elegant manner, thank you.

Keepin it krunk...


There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes...

notiti:

Certainly, dance songs have some value, but I find hip-hop to be a bit disingenuous about the quality of their lyrics. Compare: on one hand you have techno, which focuses on making good, thumping dance music. On the other, you have hip-hop, which tries to fit its dance music to the standards of pop music (chorus-verse lyric structures), but - because the song's content is so similar to last year's songs - they have to make up new words and phrases to appear to do something novel. It's a bit dishonest.

And, of course, not all hip-hop is vapid. Outkast is a notable exception (and the Grammies have thus recognized them as such), and Lauryn Hill is another great example. But they are exceptions that prove the rule: MOST of the hip-hop songs that get the most airplay are modern equivalents of "Whoop! There It Is" or "Nothing but a G-Thang".

And, I'm not singling out hip-hop, either. Country music has become VH1 with a twang, and alternative has become stuck in a depressing cul-de-suck of Nickelback and Staind.

It's frankly one of the reasons U2 is such an attractive band, musically: they cover more bases than most full GENRES, and even their most seemingly throw-away songs (Babyface, Discotheque, Sweetest Thing, and Wild Honey) have more meaning than most songs in the Top 40.

Thank you Klodo for the definition
and
Actung Bubba and Notiti..

I do think this word is derive from "crank' as in 'crank up the music.'

What a lovely think tank we all make.

Lmao! True dat! Word.

I really dislike rap/hip hop stuff. But I think Outkast is an exception. They're pretty dope-ass.

Well, the etymology of "krunk" is a whole different matter.

I believe it can be traced back to Late Night with Conan O'Brien. A few years back, Conan heavily pushed "krunk" (or "crunk") as the new swear word of the 1990's, a word that could slip by censors.

I believe that that is where the word first appeared, and I can imagine some well-cultured hip-hop artist picked up on it.
