about

The first new work by veteran beat maker Caural in nearly ten years is the original soundtrack for the film he co-produced, Word Is Bond, which premiered at Outfest Fusion in Los Angeles in March 2019. It’s a return to and reinvention of the style he grew across a critically acclaimed catalog on Chocolate Industries, Mush, and other foundation builders for the modern day “beat scene”. Eschewing genre in favor of sound, while celebrating Hip Hop as the blueprint of its spirit, this collection of new material is an extrapolation of the musical vignettes in the film that bring its characters to life.

Word Is Bond is the debut film of writer and director, Alex Mastoon (Caural’s wife). Rewinding to the twilight of rap’s golden era, this evocative and music-driven short is less a narrative than a poetic meditation - a visual verse - unveiling the struggle shared by so many in the LGBTQ community afraid to be themselves: a reality largely ignored - especially in the rap world.

Caural Los Angeles, California

Recording his first music on a Casio beginning at six, Caural (born Zachary Mastoon) went on to play in multiple bands before studying jazz improvisation with avant-garde giant Anthony Braxton, Javanese Gamelan aboard Semester At Sea, and experimental music at NYU. He began fusing his disparate influences together quite literally in 1999 with what became his signature instrument: a Yamaha SU700. ... more

Track Name: No Blow Pops
East side, west side
Off the top, yeah, you know me
Turnin' hoes out from the Frisco to O.C.
In the candy shop - no blow pops - they blow Obi
Y'all niggas on some puppet shit: Pee-wee & Globey
Track Name: Fermez La Bouche
I said "skip to my Lew", your Balance ain't New
You Goodwill kicks crusted with poo
No Nike swoosh, so fermez la bouche
Plus my size ten shoe'll loosen your tooth

The truth?
He a leprechaun with no Lucky Charms
And I heard he got a little prick
The girls call it a Skittle dick
And all the pretty chicks said they don't wanna lick
Cause only an insane ho would wanna taste this rainbow
You lame bro
You think you the best emcee?
Nigga, you better stop
He the type that's easy to drop
Y'all gonna see this lil sucker get his Tootsie popped
