Cwalk comes in two forms: Crip walk and Clown/Crown walk. Although the two have came to be known as the same thing, there is a little difference.
1. Crip walk originated from the gang Crips. It is a ritual, not a dance, of the gang. It is used to either taunt their kills or the Bloods gang, their rival, or just as a normal ritual for gang reputation. For its use against the Bloods, Crips would often use the walk to write "Bloods" with one of their feet, then cross the name out as if to rid or kill them. Crip walking is more simple and less popular.
Note: You will notice Crips will wear blue, especially while Crip walking. This is because blue is the gang's color.
2. The Clown/Crown walk is more of a hip-hop dance styled version of the Crip walk. It is more mainstream and most, if not all, practioneers do not belong in the Crips. They take cwalking as more of a dance and do not implement much or any support for the gang. It is more established than Crip walking, incorporating new moves to the dance. It also incorporates more bounce and style.
A warning for cwalkers: If you cwalk, especially in California where the Bloods and Crips hang out, it is possible that you can get murdered by either gangs. The Crips will attack you if you're not a real Crip, the Bloods will just attack you for using their rival's walk.

A Crip Walk (cwalk) song.
C-Walk is short for "Crip Walk". Although most practioners of C-Walking claim that it isn't a dance (it's more of a ritual) it is still often done to music as if it was a dance. C-Walking is a form of strutting that originated from the gang culture of Los Angeles, California and has gained in popularity among youth worldwide, mostly through rap and R&B videos. In some areas, mainly in Southern California, C-walking is still strongly associated with gangs and can be taken as an insult by an opposing gang member which can lead to fights and even murder. If a Crip catches a non-Crip doing the C-Walk it too can lead to a fight or murder. Sometimes different sets of the same gang will "battle" eachother, which is a competition to see who's Walk is better. There are also other walks, which are not as popular in the mainstream such as B-Walk (done by the Bloods gang) and Cholo Walking (done primarily by Hispanic gangs).
