Word Is Bond, a documentary by Sacha Jenkins (Fresh Dressed), examines the transformative power of lyrics in the world of Hip-Hop music, exploring the many dimensions that hip-hop poetics from Nas to Rapsody to Tech9 occupy. 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 regional dialects everywhere. Through dynamic archival footage, in-depth interviews and verite excursions with artists like Nas, Tech9, J Cole, Rapsody and Anderson .Paak (and many more), Word explores the many dimensions that hip-hop poetics occupy.
