i say it is.



buncha my friends say 16 bars = 32 lines...




set it straight y'all.



edit]]

to clear sh*t up:


if u had the following lines:

i'm so nice, call me the newborn christ
got enough money, no need for a heist


i say that's 2 bars.
my friends say that's 1 bar.

which one?

lol @ this n*gga trying to tell me to calm down lmao

"get of thee 'tip' of my d*ck"


HERE IS THE PROOF FOR DUMBARSES:

even look at games 300 bars it went for about 13 minutes of actual rapping

take into account 16 bars = 40 seconds

300bars/16bars = 18.75 pairs of 40 seconds

18.75 secs times 40 secs = 750 secs

750 secs/60 seconds (a minute) = 12.5 (12 and 1/2 minutes)

his 120 bars went for about 5 minutes

120/16 = 7.5

7.5 times 40= 300 seconds

300/60 seconds = 5 minutes

Most would count a bar by rhyme sceme, which in case would make a bar 2 lines.

1 Bar = 1 Line

1 Bar is basically saying: 1,2,3,4 at a certain tempo (which would be the tempo of the beat) every time you say 1,2,3,4 thats a bar.

Most hip-hop music is set to 4/4 which is basically 4 beats to a bar (So it 1,2,3,4) But in music you can also get 3/4 which is (1,2,3) to a bar.

Step your music games up.

Yall been lookin at fruity loops the wrong way
