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).
