'''Crunk''' is an infamous, widely-reviled subgenre of SouthernRap, which is a rather hated type of music to begin with. As such, crunk is not only considered by the TheScrappy of HipHop, but of music in general. Created by the ThreeSixMafia in the 1990's and [[TropeCodifier codified]] in the early 2000s by LilJon, crunk (a portmanteau of crazy and drunk) quickly rose to the forefront of hip-hop. Crunk is generally loud, with danceable beats being the primary focus, with lyrics, which are often immature, formulaic or downright offensive, taking a back seat. Songs often take place InDaClub, which is also where crunk music is frequently played, along with at parties, raves and other, similar venues. Most crunk music comes from UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, Georgia.

Crunk typically features minimalistic, bass-heavy instrumentals, chanted choruses, lots and lots of ClusterFBomb and NWordPrivileges (to the point where every other word can be a curse word), overt sexism (there are actually several female crunk rappers like Ciara and Rasheeda, but they're mainly there as MsFanservice and tend to objectify ''themselves'') and overly belligerent, simplistic and grammatically inaccurate lyrics about [[InDaClub the club]], casual sex, the club, using and dealing drugs, the club, partying, the club, killing people, [[OverlyLongGag the club]], criminal activity and [[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks girls' butts]]. The lyrics are almost universally hated, with even the genre's defenders admitting that they're terrible and that they only like the music for their beats. TrapMusic is a notable derivative, as was snap (a LighterAndSofter derivative that focused on being more hook-oriented and danceable and derived most of its popularity from ringtone sales; the genre essentially died the minute that smartphones started taking over the mobile market).
