Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Crip Walk, also known as the C-Walk, is a dance move that originated in the early 1970s by Crip gang members from the Compton suburb of Los Angeles, California.The rivalry between the Crips and the Bloods spilled over into the world of entertainment, with the adoption of the gang dance by various rappers on the West Coast of the United States, who gave it its name, the Crip Walk. MTV declined to broadcast any music videos that contained the Crip Walk.The Clown Walk is a variation of the Crip Walk. Unlike the Crip Walk, the Clown Walk is strictly just a dance, not associated to the Crips whatsoever. The Blood Bounce is an alternative dance performed by the Bloods. These can be abbreviated to Cwalk, causing much confusion as to whether people are Crip Walking or Clown/Crown Walking.
