    If the beat is 4/4, the bar typically ends at every kick.

    / Remember back in the days, when niggaz had waves / bar 1
    / Gazelle shades, and corn braids / bar 2

    so would remember be the 1st beat in the 1st bar
    and gazelle be the 1st beat in the second bar

    shades and the second beat in the second bar
    and corn the third beat in second bar

    and waves the 4 beat in the 1st bar
    and braids the 4 beat in bar 2

    A bar is a measurement of the instrumental. It has nothing to do with the words. The line ends at the end of the bar.
