“Set Up The Mic” wasn’t ever meant to be recorded. Over the “Rapid Burst” riddim, Buju Banton let off a freestyle while he waited for the engineer to finish setting up. What he didn’t know was that the engineer had already pressed record. Here’s the result.
Producer Mr. G said of the track, “The thing about this song, it’s got a happy, playful kinda energy. The world will appreciate and love hearing Buju again, banging as the great Buju Banton. Although it’s a freestyle, if I don’t tell people it’s a freestyle, they would never know it.”
