Word Is Bond examines the transformative power of lyrics in the world of hip-hop music. What was born on the streets of the South Bronx has now taken root globally, and the young poets of New York have helped to spawn a global movement. Through dynamic archival footage, in-depth interviews and verite excursions with artists like Nas, Tech9, J Cole, Rapsody, Anderson .Paak, Run the Jewels, Vince Staples, Big Daddy Kane, Jadakiss, Styles P (and many more) Word explores the many dimensions that hip hop poetics occupy.
