Crunk

Crunk

Crunk is a subgenre of hip hop music that emerged in the early 1990s and gained mainstream success during the mid 2000s. Crunk is often up-tempo and one of Southern hip hop's more dance and club oriented subgenres. An archetypal crunk track frequently uses a main groove consisting of layered keyboard synths, a drum machine clapping rhythm, heavy basslines, and shouting vocals, often in a call and response manner. The term "crunk" was also used throughout the 2000s as a blanket term to denote any style of Southern hip hop, a side effect of the genre's breakthrough to the mainstream. The word derives from its African-American slang past-participle form, "crunk", of the verb "to crank". It refers to being excited or high on drugs.

History

Three different radio edits of "Get Low" have been released. One had amended lyrics (i.e. "take that thang to the floor, you skank, you skank"), while the other two bleeped out certain profanities. Of the two bleep censored versions, one version left the word "goddamn" intact while the other censored the word.

The Ying Yang Twins used their lines from the song later in their song "Hanh!" from the album Me & My Brother, and in the remix of Pitbull's song "Bojangles". In addition, the line "bend over to the front and touch your toes" was reused in Usher's 2004 song "Yeah!", on which Lil Jon and Ludacris provided the rap vocals.

A version of the song, highly edited due to its subject matter and use of profanity, was featured on the Need for Speed: Underground soundtrack. A less-edited version was featured 9 years later on the Kinect game Dance Central 3. This song was also a playable track in the video game Def Jam Rapstar. The uncensored version appears in the Xbox 360 video game Def Jam: Icon. Lil Jon (without the East Side Boyz) appears in the video game as a playable character providing his own voice and likeness.

This song was also featured in the movies White Chicks, Coach Carter and The Proposal, where Sandra Bullock's character raps it. An abbreviated version of the song appeared in “The Mattress”, a season 3 episode of the scripted comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
