The roof hasn't been raised with such passion since Pontiac Silverdome rebuilding efforts.


The situation may have temporarily looked grim, but songs called "Raise The Roof" have yet to fade into obscurity. The preservation efforts of 2017 XXL Freshman Kap G have played a pivotal role in such efforts, and he should be thanked accordingly. Now, Kap has linked up with Ty Dolla $ign for a muted banger, in which stacking the money to roof-level heights is the mission statement. The song itself goes hard without forcing its way through the door, a perfect backdrop for Ty Dolla and Kap G's uptempo lyricism.

I can't be sure, but "Raise The Roof" does feel like one of those instrumentals that ambiguously samples Donkey Kong 2; the jury is still out on that one. Either way, there's something hypnotic about the arrangement, especially when the DK synth rolls through a la Diddy Kong mid cartwheel. Lyrically, both parties serve worthy contributions, with Kap flexing on his new and improved lifestyle. Peep the single below, and sound off; are ya'll feeling this?

Quotable Lyrics

I just came up on a pot of gold, oh
Met the lil bitch at a Papadeaux, oh
Tell her "gimme top then you gotta go"
Told her don't stop, make it rapido
Money on the way, yeah I gotta go
