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"

Usag and meaning varies.

1. Bad smell, odiferous, maloderous
2. Depressed state, moody
3. Musical movement/genre
1. Leaving a glass of milk on your windowsill for days on end will result in a distinct miasma, or Funk.
2. Feeling down in the dumps, sort of lazy, edgy or irritable, but without justifiable cause is referred to as being in a Funk.
3. Music speaks for itself- George Clinton & the P Funk All Stars...

Used to be a bad word. Irre-ducible essential pulse, life force, hyperventilatin' Groove. Not only moves, it can re-move; will sit and sit and never go sour.
"If you got Funk, you got style"

Slang for high-quality marijuana, originating from Broward County, Florida. Derivatives of the slang include, "James Brown", "George Clinton", etc. All devised so as to elude law enforcement knowledgability.
Who got that funk? Who got that funk? Who got that funk? Broward County got that funk, ya heard?

funk is a state of mind
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time, cause y'all have knocked her up. I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe...I was not offended, for I knew I had to rise above it all, or drown in my own shit.

-Funkiest sentence ever (heard on "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic)

An unfriendly altercation in the Bay Area. Funk means a problem is going to occur momentarily because two opposing groups have just arrived at the same location. In Hawaii they call it beef. In the Bay Area, it's funk.
"There's about to be some funk up in here bro. Some drunk ass fools just walked in talkin' all kinds trash about Jr."

"I hope I don't see JR this time. I've got mad funk with that fool."

"You got some funk?! Bitch!"

"Them boys are funkin' all the time!"
