חרך K[H]aRaQ is a notch or small gap, as in the latttice windows of Songs 2:9. It is the source of CRACK.
חרך K[H]aRaQhas the Het-Resh subroot
of חורK[H]OAR (hole, see “HOLLOW”) combined with the Resh-Khaf of רךRahKH
(slight, weak– see “WEAK” ).
"Crack is Wack" in slang is a slogan to warn people that crack cocain gonna mess you up. WACK is "weak" or uncool.
My other dictionary, with Lois Stavsky and Dani Reyes Mozeson,
is A2Z: The Book of Rap + Hip-Hop Slang (Berkley Books).
Some Hebrew scholar types aint gonna be down wit dat.
Sorry, I haven't met a word I didn't like.
