"Clap Back" is a song recorded by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. It's from Iggy Azalea's second studio album, In My Defense. The song was released with Bad Dreams and Empire on July 19, 2019. Iggy Azalea discusses the many controversies and hate she has received as an artist and how she has made a “comeback” from these attacks on her career.

Background[]

After having a successful run in 2014 with her breakout hit “Work”, the number-one single “Fancy”, and a few other notable songs, Iggy soon became the topic of hate and for the years that followed she saw difficulty regaining a fan-base and producing successful music. She also has had difficulty with her previous labels Def Jam and Island Records, who she left to create her own label under Empire. From having her first Billboard Hot 100 Entree since 2016, recovering from the work put into a scrapped second studio album, and putting much of her controversies and haters behind her, Iggy Azalea can claim she’s made a successful “clap back” into the music industry.

[Intro]

J White, I need a beat I can go off on (Ooh)

[Chorus]

'Cause I talk like this and my ass fat

They be saying Iggy tryna act black

Hatin' broke hoes get laughed at

All they do is cap like snapbacks

He hit me up, he said he having flashbacks

You're my ex for a reason, I don't backtrack

Gimme 50 feet bitch, back, back

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

[Verse 1]

I-G-G, play with that girl

I'm gon' get on your head like a snapback

Bad bitch, got a bag, and her body stacked like flapjacks

AP cost 21, no blackjack (Oh)

I can make the dealer bust (Uh)

And I could give a fuck who ain't feelin' us (No)

Brand new range in the driveway

Squattin' on Forgis, no shoestring, sittin' up

10 bank accounts and all of them got to fillin' up

You gone, but the home girl (What?) is a millionaire (Uh)

Got Ben Fran in a choke hold 'til he tap out

Know these broke hoes feel like giving up

Hey, still litty on 'em

Pigeon-toed, thick form girl, that mean Iggy on 'em

Need a bad boy 'cause I'm tryna go Diddy on him

I don't even have to say shit right here and I shitted on 'em

[Chorus]

'Cause I talk like this and my ass fat

They be saying Iggy tryna act black

Hatin' broke hoes get laughed at

All they do is cap like snapbacks

He hit me up, he said he having flashbacks

You're my ex for a reason, I don't backtrack

Gimme 50 feet bitch, back, back

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

[Verse 2]

They call me racist

Only thing I like is green and blue faces

None of my exes could say that I'm crazy

We not the same, baby, you shop at Macy's

Take a pic and then go say that we date

If they don't got a story, I swear they gon' make it

No more questions, I ain't giving no statements

The shots I send back do not come with a chaser

Heard 'em say that I got dropped from the label

But that did not happen, please stop all that capping

I'm clapping, I'm off now, I own all my masters

My downfall, they pray on that shit like a pastor

I love all my haters, I'm being sarcastic

I left, but I'm 'bout to bounce back like elastic

Fuck all these other bitches, I'm the baddest

From now on, you can call me Iggy the savage

[Chorus]

'Cause I talk like this and my ass fat

They be saying Iggy tryna act black

Hatin' broke hoes get laughed at

All they do is cap like snapbacks

He hit me up, he said he having flashbacks

You're my ex for a reason, I don't backtrack

Gimme 50 feet bitch, back, back

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Ooh)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

Clap back (Ooh), clap back (Yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back

[Outro]

(Clap back, clap back, clap back, clap back)

(Clap back, clap back, yeah)

(Clap back, clap back, clap back, clap back)

(Clap back, clap back, yeah)

I got time today, I'm finna clap back
