Black Music:
In former days it was used as a bad word for describing the alleged black Americans odor. About the late 50ties black people in America adapted the word and turned it into something positive (like say did with other words as well like 'bad'). So it became an expression reserved for black people meaning their lifestyle and upcoming self-confidence. Especially in Jazz music at that time it was a new style/type of playing called funky (e.g. Horace Silver and Jimmy Smith) which found it's way in the 60ties into R'n'B music and led to the creation to Funk music in the late 60ties with protagonists like James Brown, the meters, sly and the family stone and the bar kays... Funk had it's peak between the early and midseventies, before Disco came as a kind of fake-funk. Funk also can be seen as predecessor for Disco and for contamporary musical styles like Hip Hop, Acid Jazz, Drum'n Bass, House, Big Beat and Crossover/Funkrock/Funkmetal. Which (exept the latter) all sample Funk Music.
James Brown: "It's got to be funky" and "Make it funky"
Lee Dorsey: "Everything I do gonna be funky from know on"
"James Brown's "the funky drummer" is one of the most sampled Funk songs"

trouble, drama, shit, when someone tries to start funk it means they are trying to start shit/drama/trouble/problems with you.
"Through out my whole life I ain't never had shit
Thats why I pack a 9 glock with a an extra clip
These foo's wanna start funk we could bring it on
We could shake and dump untill the break of dawn"

An incorporal entity of undeniable contemporary cool, typically sought after by the bored or uncomfortable. Makes any social situation less awkward, and always comes with music.
This is lame. Where the funk at?

good stuff. good humor. when somebody is particularly funny - they are funky.
if a friend who is usually fairly amusing is in a sulk or being uncharacteristicly quiet, one may order them to ''bring on the funk''

Fucking Ugly Native Kid.

Otherwise known as a shaddy these creatures make their natural habitat in Calgary Canada. Main diet of feet and cheezburgers.

Mom replies, Quickly son get the matches and the gasoline.

When a part of your body is in a small amount of pain when you either sleep in a wrong position, or when you pull a muscle.
Andrew: Aww, man. I slept wrong, I've got this evil funk in my arm.

Matt: Just fall on it or soemthing... Pop it back into place.
