So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof
Like my daughters and raise it

from Eminem – Not Afraid Lyrics on Rap Genius


To “raise the roof” is to create a good party. Em promises to always raise the roof (make exciting music) like he “raises” (nurtures/takes care of/parents, etc.) his three daughters (one biological, two adopted)
