"word" originated from a gangsta' who at first said "word" as a sign of affirmation, however most other gangstas thought this was stupid, and they decided to keep it gangsta by popping a few caps in that nigga's ass.

these very gangstas then looked upon the original sayer of "word" as an idol, for having been shot.

forever after other gangstas used "word" as a "yes."
Gansta 1: Imma pop a cap!
Gansta 2: Word!

A greeting of hipsters of the past. Currently it is a greeting by stuffy middle aged people to make themselves feel with the times.
As manager Bob walks by his new employee with sagging pants he deepens his voice and says Word. The two laugh. Bob thinks he has bonded with the new employee when in reality he has only proven that he is indeed a tool.
