Seeing this word a lot in hip hop lately, what the hell does it mean?
When I first heard this three years ago I was told it'd been around awhile. According to the girl I heard use it, it can mean pretty much anything. It's one of those that depends on the context.
I always thought it meant the person using the word was really annoying and I should walk away asap
"get crunk" means let's have a great time.

I heard an interview w/Lil Jon, the self proclaimed "King of Crunk" and he said it was acting "Punk" but in a hip hop way like slamdancing.
I must be old.. until now, I've never heard the term crunk. But, I will try to use it as often as I can from now on.
didn't Conan O'brien come up with the word 'crunk' or 'krunk'. I can't remember, it was like 10 years ago. It was his attempt to create a swear word.
Now what about "drick"? They used that one on Green Acres.
crunk: noun, verb, adjective: see smurf
It means "Marklar."
I think it's also used to refer to a sub-genre of hip-hop and/or rap music.
a few years back, it was reserved for getting hyped/excited WITHOUT drugs/alcohol explicitly, at least in how I heard it used.
No, no, no! Crunk is the big strong guy on Justice Friends.
All I know is, and I am a fan of Hip Hop (have been since mid 80's), that "Crunk" rap is absolutely terrible. Its a tad better than the Miami sound of the late 80's to early 90's but just plain awful.
Thank you Paul, I was beginning to think Iwas the only person who had seen that old Conan episode. He definitely coined the term.
Shameless plug: DJ Krunk
I think the popularity of the word, going from hip-hop underground to mainstream notice, is due in part to the breakaway success of OutKast, which draws the pop music spotlight on Southern rap. While most mainstream rap is from New York or California, the Southern style is finally becoming prominent. They like to crunk a lot.
