TheWordIsBond.Com is more than just a website. We are the embodiment of a movement striving towards the growth of the arts. As a team of dedicated writers, we try our best to deliver quality hip-hop music and articles.

Now more than ever, fans of hip-hop look for sites that can provide an alternative to mainstream boredom. Here you will find all sorts of underground gems, but mostly you will find the truth. Unlike many other publications, our reviews aren’t biased, nor will we try and ‘sell’ you an artist.

We appreciate your feedback and comments, building a community; we can honour the emcees that are over-looked and under valued. Each section of the site will bring a different element to the blog, which will allow you to explore our vision for the future, one which is not tied down by commercial constraints.

Head of Submissions/Daily Posts: AKA teckzilla

Hip-Hop enthusiast. Why do the breeze about it when you can be about it.

Daily Posts/Events: George Gabriel AKA GKG

Twenty two year old Hip Hop fiend. Representing the heads out there sick of that radio nonsense that they keep beating us over the head with. This right here is Hip Hop, its' alive and kickin' in this modern post war era. Hip Hop won't stop because it can't stop! On that note just remember, whack music will only die if you don't purchase it.

Contributor/Reviews: AKA DJ AFOS

Founder and programmer of the Internet radio station AFOS (A Fistful of Soundtracks), which streams film and TV score music (afistfulofsoundtracks.blogspot.com). Currently based in Silicon Valley but always hated the valley and has forever longed to move to NYC, partly because so much killer hip-hop emerged from there. I've been on board with hip-hop since I was eight and I started contemplating Egyptian philosophical questions like "What is a DJ if he can't scratch?"

Managing Editor: Lorcan O'Connor AKA LRCN

Very early 20s, studying for a Masters in Mathematics at the University of Leeds by day. But by both day and night I'm a deep lover of music, with a pinch of Pokemon and football fanaticism.

Contributor/Reviews: Dan AKA Dan

Rising from the murky depths of an early 80s, Essex, council estate. Music nerd right from his double helix all the way to his epidermis. Video editor by day and asleep by night. Loves to spot samples and then expand his musical horizons with the source record. Fell in love with hip hop when 'Wikki Wikki/Jam On It' was released, in 1983, blowing his, five year old, mind. One time DJ. Frustrated guitarist. Even more frustrated drummer.
