    dude...
    don't worry bout the structure
    that'll take the fun out of it...:)
    just say what you feel
    and make it rhyme...that's all
    peace

    a stanza is 16 bars
    a bar is like
    1 one thousand
    2 one thousand
    3 one thousand
    4 one thousand...

    then a chorus is 4 bars

    but like i said...do what you feel
    the phatest cats in my book
    do their own thing....
    it gives them their own style
    and that's what you need to find....
    your style...word

    peace

    the stanza in rap is the verse
    and a bar is the measurement of time for a verse
    as stated in the previous post...
    most raps songs follow this format

    stanza -16 bars
    chorus -4 or 8 bars
    stanza-16 bars
    chorus-4 or 8 bars
    stanza-16 bars
    chorus-4 or 8 bars

    i hope this helped out some
    like i said...that's just the basics
    in terms of structure...
    learn to do your own thing man
    peace
