"Word" is the shortened form of the phrase: "my word is my bond" which was originated by inmates in U.S. prisons. The longer phrase was shortened to "word is bond" before becoming "word," which is most commonly used. It basically means "truth." Or "to speak the truth."
"Yo, I fucked twelve bitches last night."
"Word?" ("You speak the truth?")

A versatile declaration, originating (more or less) in hip-hop culture.

Its usage among young blacks has been parodied ad nauseam among clueless suburban whites.
