Word Is Bond is a documentary film by Sacha Jenkins that 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 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.
We cut out the scenes that features Royce 5’9″, Mr. Porter, Royce’s father and mother’s new interviews, old Eminem and Royce’s freestyle footage and Flatbush Zombies naming Eminem as one of the biggest influences in the hip-hop culture. The documentary won “Best Music Documentary” at Jury Awards 2018. You can watch the video below:
