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
idiotssssssssssssss

more proof:

Artist: Notorious B.I.G.
Album: Lyricist Lounge Vol. 2
Song: 16 Bars
Typed by: OHHLA Webmaster DJ Flash

* recorded live; some idiot yelling "YO BIGGIE MAN!"
and "GO BIGGIE MAN!" obscured this line - it's not very clear

[Big] Cut that sh*t off man
[Puff] What you're about to see comin next is
[Big] Rhyme for rhyme (??)
[Puff] The n*gga that's represented me
[Big] Rhyme for rhyme
[Puff] in ninety-three
[Big] Let a Bad Boy wreck dog, give it here
[Puff] Give it up for my man
[Big] Give it here
[Puff] You aight Big, give 'em about 16 bars
[Big] Set it off like this

[Notorious B.I.G.]
All you n*ggaz better leave the fu*kin state, no need to masturbate
fu*kin with Biggie, it's time to castrate.. it's clobberin time
When I rip rhymes I quench thirsts like Very Fine
and I'm still thirsty - n*ggaz wanna hurt the, six-pack, maniac
Coke, tecs, and macs black
Check the stacks, what the fu*k?
I throw uppercuts like Ridd*ck Bowe
And I'm wicked with the slow-flow, y'know?
I'm pressin hard, I'm leavin creases
Cuttin up bodies and talkin to the pieces
* If there's beef I'm eatin meatless
Touch the bone, hit the dome, Al Capone
Get stoned off the blunt when it's filled with the skunk
Get drunk, and do a demolition to punk
And all chumps, that scream that my sh*t don't thump
They catch lumps and bumps, I'll put a shake in your rump

he has a wierd flow he starts rhyming at the end of a bar eg. his 2nd one "castrate"-->>> than he goes on to say "lobbering time"

all in all 16 bars=16 lines

and mrniceguy the average rapper normally spits 3 sets of 16 bars and of course some rappers rap more

A bar is a measure of music, so its however you define it from there...

Edit: Basically I'd say 16 bars is just whatever you spit within' 16 bars of the beat...you usually keep the format of a line per bar, but different rappers have different flows as you guys are saying
