Purveyors of hip-hop style have a home and more on The Word. Network creator Syd Woodward has done a great job of tricking out the network to reflect one of the most “versatile and impassioned cultural phenomenae.”
It has a sleek style and is very interactive and engaging. When you first get to the main page, you’re hit by a random track from a queue of underground hip-hop artists. This sets the stage to browse this hip network. There is a lot of content here to absorb! What look like decorations on the left side of the main page are actually thumbnails for a series of artists, e-zines, and magazines that are connected through hiphop.
The network revolves to some degree around a series of episodes appropriately named, The Word. Watching the first will probably help you understand what The Word is all about. This network is devoted to the culture of hip-hop, and threading it all together. The photos page is a good example of some hiphop art that goes beyond the music. If you’re looking to learn more about the scene or maybe see a music video you can check out the forum page where members post anything and everything about their projects and those of others.
