AllMusic Review by

"Getting crunk" is the hip-hop equivalent of the alt kid's moshing. It's a communal thing, mostly fueled by Southern-fried beats and rhymes. Get Crunk, the album, is a collection of Southern-stewed hip-hop by such stalwart crunkers as Three Six Mafia, Goodie Mob, Crooked Lettaz, Lil' KeKe, and Skull Duggery. Yet it's newcomers L.G.'s (Lyrical Giants) who best represent this splintered hip-hop form by shifting from Miami bass to No Limit-style electrobeats with a playful aggression. But like a mosh punk's monotonous set list, crunk stylists tend to all sound the same. And the experience is diluted outside the clubs for which the music is made, rendering this compilation ineffective when removed from its environment.
