Word is bond son, I had that bitch down on my shit like this

from Nas – Street Dreams Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas' word is bond, as in, he only spits the truth. If he says he’s gonna do something or tells a story about something he did, it’s not a lie. He keeps his promises — he’s not a pimp or a con, or the heads of his old drug-dealing crews who exploited him to get rich themselves, and not bring Nas and the other people working under them up as well. Nas uses irony here, because, while he is saying that he is not a pimp, who’s word is usually not his bond, the next words out of his mouth describe how he had sex with Trina, which is something that a pimp would do.
