the word crunk DOES NOT refer to how intoxicated a person is, nor does it refer to the devices used to become intoxicated.

simply put, crunk means cranked up, or already cranked up. it is the past tense of crank up. suppose you are hosting a party at your house. then at some point, you decide to crank it up. then it is crunk.

think of it this way:
if you do something, then it's done.
if you find something, then it's found.
if you sink something, then it's sunk.
and if you crank something, then it's crunk.

i know you don't believe me. please just go to youtube, search "lil jon chelsea lately", and watch the interview.

crunk (adj) to have a good time while engaging in high volume and often wild activity.
believed by most to be a combination of chronic and drunk but its origins cannot be confirmed. today it is used in a more innocent light simply referring to having a "boisterous good time" can easily be used as a rallying call to get a party or crowd hyped up.

Contrary to what the rest of you jackasses say about crunk being a mixture of crazy and drunk or chronic and drunk or what the fuck ever else you think. Crunk is southern slang for the passed tense of Crank. I.E. "I went to crank up the mower and it crunk right up." It was adopted into street slang by Southern rappers and DJ's wanting to "Crank up the club".

I know this. I'm from the dirty so ya'll can stop makin ish up now.
"Let's get dis club Crunk Up!" or "Was good big homie? Was da club poppin last night?" "Hells yeah dawg! Dat shit was Crunk!" or otherwise "Cranked Up.

A "cracker" way to say the word crunk. One who says this usually does not fit in and often sounds like a dork.
