Wack

sound symbolism; adjective; interjection
weird, defying social convention in a whimsical or unnecessary way
 
While wack means “weird or strange,” it’s actually a very specific type of “strange.” Rather than meaning “creepy or scary,” the meaning of wack is closer to “against social norms” or “extremely unnecessary.” For example, in the phrase “this integral is really wack,” wack doesn’t really mean that the integral is “scary or creepy,” but means that the integral is either unnecessarily hard or is defying the “norm” of what an integral generally looks like.
