smh @ the idiots in this thread...


i post factual proof yet it is ignored...


oh well...continue to drown in ignorance...

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

yo mr. niceguy... that sh*t u posted = DOESN'T PROVE sh*t.


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...

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.."

on most rap songs that are aimed to be commercially ACCEPTABLE = 16 bars is a verse

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

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
