last thread, it went on for 5 pages, w/ the opinions VERY VERY divided..

so this time got a poll to straighten this debate out...



from last thread: [the PROBLEM]
 [[.f.r.e.$.h.]] said

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?

Man, 16 bars IS 16 lines!

Example:

(1) This right here, it's the very first line/
(2) And this is the second one, get it right this time/

^Two bars=Two lines

iono it differs if you ask me....

When you are actually rapping and everything I count 1 bar = 2 lines..........but when you're looking at lyrics I count each line as a bar....I have NO CLUE why but iono that's how I do it.....

To me, that doesn't make any sense. How would that differ from saying it and reading it? That's like you're reading one of your 16's on paper, and when it's recorded it's now 32 bars?!

Whatever you spit within the measure of the bar. Most rappers make the end of what they spit within' the bar of music rhyme, so when they spit 2 lines where the ends rhyme, they spit 2 bars.

Exactly. Lines arnt universal. It depends on the emcees writing style and delivery. If they do alot of multi's then there gonna pile up more lines then others and if they have a rapid fire delivery like Twista or Bone then there gonna average way more then say a nas or slick rick who have a slower more laid back delivery scheme. Its really not that hard to figure out. If you've had any sort of music class in highschool then this should be basic knowledge to you.

yall need to quit acting like since u think thats what it is, then thats what it is.


a line is 1 measurement of music

a bar is 2 measurements of music

there is NEVER more than 16 bars per verse, otherwise the song would be uneven!!!!

16 bars or 32 lines

example:

"Well i'm ridin by myself, well really, not really." <----one line, one line ends when u say the word ur going to rhyme.

"So heavy in the trunk, make the car pop a wheelie" <-----add that in, then u got urself a bar!!!

so....

"well im ridin by myself, well really not really.
so heavy in the trunk, it makes the car pop a wheelie."<----thats a bar, say 16 times, and i bet u money that u the chorus comes right up.

In reality...8 bars is 16 lines...and 16 bars is actually 32 lines....believe me..I rap myself and actually know the difference between it..

And count the seconds in a song for one verse...and I can guarantee its anywhere from 35-42 seconds..depending on how long or short the lines are themselves...a typical 16 is like 40 seconds though..because an 8 line chorus would be 20 seconds roughly...

depends on ur flow, the tempo of the track n how u spitting it.....i wrote 16 for a slow flow then i decided to spit it wid a fast flow instead n it only took up half of the track, had to write anova 16...but when i normally write bars....a line a bar usually dus it

Alot of songs are more or less then 16. They just cant be an odd number. You could spit 18 or 20 but never 19 or 21. Well I guess you could it would just sound like you didnt know what the fu*k you were doing. Look at Bis, he often spits 50 to 100 straight. It all depends on how the beat is constructed. And your discription was flawed. Not every dude has the same rhyme scheme. Heres 2 bars from G rap compared to 2 bars from Canibus from the same song. Same amount of bars, but vastly different ryme progression.

G RAP
