"Set The Roof" begins with a catchy bassline and west coast feel whistle synth sound. You can hear DJ Mustard all over it, but with a more west coast vibe than usual. Lil Jon then comes in with his trademark raspy hype chorus that is sure to be stuck in your head for hours after hearing this song, and craving to hear it again, ‘We set the roof on fire.” After the chorus, Swae Lee begins his verse, fairly standard, until he comes in with an incredible slew of triplet bars, almost a Migos flow, which then ushers in the head banging, club rattling, super catchy chorus, this time with some piano in the background. Next, Slim Jimmy comes in with a pretty typical Slim Jim verse, always keeping the energy of the song up, and then concludes his verse with the same triplet filled, Migos-y pre chorus as Swae Lee.
This song is different than many other Rae Sremmurd songs due to it’s faster tempo, probably about 93 BPM, which is where Lil Jon really thrives. I like this new, faster, side of Rae Sremmurd and can’t wait to listen to the rest of "Sremm Life 2." This banger is guaranteed to be spun at college parties, bars, and to set the roof of any turn up session on fire.
