“Phonk” traditionally referred to the music style itself without lyrics, but as most emerging music styles do, it’s evolved into a sort of new-age emo/grunge mix of Phonk, Hip-Hop, and Alternative Rock. All of the below can be considered modern phonk, even though in the strictest sense, traditional phonk is lyricless. A lot of people will know the “phonk walk” song Why Not by Ghostface Playa

Oh great thanks! It’s exciting to watch a new electronic music genre develop. The last time I was aware of that happening was around 2016 with Vaporwave…

Could you link some examples, it might help people figure it out.

Although this is more of a question for a different community

Tabitha,

You didn’t include any audio samples, so I’ll just guess War Crime Pop?
