Have you ever heard the phrase “spit a hot 16” and wondered what it meant?

On today’s show I break down the science behind 16 bars, how they are used, and why they are important in the structure of hip-hop songs.

If you are an up and coming MC, you will definitely want to tune in to this show. I let you know what a bar is, what 16 of them are, and how to count them. This will only improve the quality of your songs.

Beyond that, I hope that this edition of Know Your History will help to show that rap is actually following musical conventions.
