for everybody that posted in this thread, A BAR IS MEASURED IN TIME...


 Casey Wells said:
pretty much all rap beats are written in a 4/4 time scale. so you could write words along to this but again there could be several lines in 1 bar depending on how fast you say them or there could be just one word in a bar


words can only be measured by the amount of time it takes to read them or to say them. thats like lookin at this post and tryin to measure it in miles per hour. it doesnt make sense.

a bar is measured by beats in a measure

THAT IS THE TRUTH...THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO DISCUSS...

depends on how fast u rap also

yep...cause if its a twist...... 2 lines is equal to 1 bar......so then your 16 would become 32 bars.....cause it takes longer to write too....

this 16 bar thing is a myth...cause look at all the conscious rappers that flow over 16 in one verse! .....

Canibus...
Artist: Canibus
Album: Mic Club: The Curriculum
Song: Poet Laureate
Typed by: *

* send corrections to the typist

Yo, Houston to Earth
Watch the ripper crucify you with verse
My urethra to ya uvula, quenches your thirst
Put your flames out with dry desert dirt where leopards lurk
Lock your soul down with an esoteric weapon search
Strap a bomb to one of your labels record clerks
And activate it as soon as they get to work
Ring the alarm, red alert, n*gga it gets worse
Bypass security networks with select words
Megahertz make nebulas reverse till your head burst
Call the press first and ask them who got the best verse
Give me the respect I deserve
If you are what you eat, it's obvious I can't eat what I'm worth
Yall n*ggas eat pus*y and burp
The other half of yall suck d*ck till your jaws and ya neck hurt
When you address me n*gga end your sentence with sir
Critics went beszerk they aint even heard my best work
See I broke into the mind by
Quietly goin by their eardrum walls and hotwired they skulls
Yeah I earned the name Canibus, but what did it cost?
Battle rappers nothing but a serendipitous wh0ore
n*ggas probably like, what da fu*k he dissin him for?
Yeah he dissed me first but you was never informed
I'm one of the top five n*gga, my sh*t is tight n*gga
you heard it right n*gga, I rock mics n*gga
But the limelight isn't where I belong
The top four don't even look in the mirror no more
If they did I'd be in the mirror looking back at em, ready to grab them
Kidnap them, and put them on my album
I rip jackers, Rip the time space fabric
Loop the future with the past tense looking for patterns
Eradicate Africans that sold Africans to Saxons
and forced black men to pay taxes
Attack a wack bi*ch with counter tactics
Split your bullet proof chases in half with a rapid gatling
Keep firing at cha till you trapped in
Now come back and scramble for helicopter extractions
While I'm back and forth back braggin
How I tortured them f*g**ts and stabbed them with rip the jacker daggers
Slay dragons with old passages from black magic manuscripts
I found in the cabinet written in Arabic
Translate to characters one by one, like Arafat tarot cards suggest
I make terrorist threats through your stereo sets
Various anthrax carriers sendin serin to the press
At an imaginary address, Cani's the best
Untraceable, your pictures unpaintable, canvas thats wet
Let me dry you of wit some of this fire I spit
26 years old n*gga look how I spit
A microphone fiend since I was like fourteen
My Cuban uncle used to sell cocaine, OK?
I'm reloaded, you fu*kin wit the wrong emcee
Crudes felt your cold disease to the whole industry
Potent as Hennessey that was distilled in Tennessee
One shot scrambles your memory indefinitely
Nowadays a hundred bars aint impressive to me
You stepping to me n*gga do it intelligently
You wanna battle or you wanna fu*kin wrestle wit me
You aint better than me, you just got an obsession wit me
Canibus hybrid, the cake icing of rhyminingness
As I grow older I get colder like the declining
Climate of earth's environment, I'm entirely tireless
Rhymes come from my higherness of wireless dialect
Scientist on cyber speed design my specs
Astral project, therein height in secs, chakras connect
Doctors inspect what they can't possibly interpret yet
That's why they revert to threats
They curse and throw fits
They like immature earth cadets, looking like Captain Kirk in a dress
Lyrically I step on you, rip on you, then I defecate what I just digested on you
I'm better than you, I'm better than you, I'm better than you
Just to get the checkered flag I'll put the pressure on you
Put the extra effort on you
Write a motha fu*kin letter to you and your editors too, threatin you
Detective check your mail and your messenger to
You can take this verbal slashin that I left as a clue
Execute the type of wickedness the devil approves
Which basically means I can do whatever witchu
I'm a rap music mutant, wit a cool name
Misconstrue fame but I spit butane
Blue flames out giant CO2 tanks
Demagnetize memory banks, enhanced, advanced
One of a kind like modern man's retina scan
Quick as a glance and flickers from kerosene lamps
What you want me to break first your jaw or your grill?
What type of spit you want from me sparkling or steel
Study law, yield draw up my own deals
So the longer they resist me the stronger I feel
Spread the ganglia from Tanzania to the flats of East Anglia
Give up, you cant keep up
The man eater in a wife beater
Spreadin Typhoid Fever through mic receivers with light reverb
Type in the right keywords, I might emerge
Takes a really nice n*gga to excite these nerds
n*ggas wanna see the gully in me, keep fu*kin with me
Never under pressure, I keep the pressure under me
Bun?? Or weed, drop a freestyle on the internet then watch n*ggas burn the CD
Upload a picture of your mug getting DP'd
I'm one size away from 13, believe it she p'd
I'm the illest and its gonna be that way for eva
Word of mouth is good but a mouth of words is betta n*gga
No body gets sicker than the ripper!!!!!!!!!

lmao.. canibus' poet laureate's = don't have hooks... it's like game's 300 bars, nonstop rappin... so postin that up as a "normal verse" = retarded.



for any rapper, 16 bars = verse, on the average. that's the BASIC. of COURSE there are billions of songs out there w/ 24 bar, 30 bar, 40 bar verses... but that doesn't mean anything...

yea i dont understand why noone is believing what you put up there.... a bar is written with music notes on sheet music, not text on a piece of paper... how are you supposed to have a stretched line if one line = one bar.... all a bar is from a text stand point for example on a 4/4 beat is "STREETS is WATCHing"... the caps are the emphasis... now if you said "streets IS watchING" is a completely different bar

Ur Still Wrong..here's COMMON SONG W/ HOOK INCLUDED

[Common]
Underground under pressure, my style is the child
of a lesser, God, I Master like Farad
Persona in between the El Rook'n, and El DeBarge
Metaphorically massage, verbal hajj
I take over breaks and chop loops
Glorifyin, one-eighty hat cats can rock in my troops
Wisdom like a tooth, mock new sh*ts I knock loose
Datin game Thursday's I spot juice, Plug like Pos'nus
Before you get a style, let's get a style
My style pans the crowd back and forth
You were soft as the tracks you rappin off, I pop sh*t
You tried to laugh it off, actin like you had to cough
and didn't hear it, my spirit sustains in the same pattern
emcee, familiar sample period; spottin where you sampled
your rhyme scheme from -- I ain't clearin it
I drop science and experiment -- contractually
came to terms of endearment with my label
Want to pick out a day to smack wack n*ggaz, I contact n*ggaz
like P.O.'s, you spit background lyrics, I rip Lee flows
Wipin your nose like you need blows
Claimin it's a allergy, I react allergic to cats
or is it how they word it
If you had weight it must have been some pus*y you served with
Thoughts fermented, I rode rhythms and words tinted
Many lip profess, I'm verb centered


^^^ That verse is way over 16 Lines..or Bars...please explain?

Just dance, you know you gots the feelin ------ da damn HOOK...
Just dance, ah come on and get down
and just dance, you know you gots the feelin
Just dance, ah come on and get down
and just dance, you know you gots the feelin
Just dance, ah come on and get down
and just dance, you know you gots the feelin
Just dance, ah come on and get down
"Just get on down.."

A bar is a four count. So if you rap every line in FOUR COUNTS then 16 bars = 16 lines.

It all depends what time signature a song is in. Since most beats are in 4/4 (4 beats to a bar, quarter note = 1 beat), count to 4 along with the tempo, and that's one bar. It doesn't apply to all songs tho, because you can have songs like "Spaceships" which is in 6/8.

think of "Duel Of The Iron Mic", you hear how the sample is looping? That's a one bar loop.

1 line = 1 bar
so a 16 = 16 lines
n*ggas are retarded if they dont kno about that
example :
Baseheads Know who cut cake(1line/bar thats the setup)/
my stash box like aaliyah plain sh*t holding to much weight(1line)

^total of 2 bars .. doesnt matter how slow or fast u say it
