"Bang Bang" is a hip-hop song by Kardinal Offishall. Released in 2004, the single appears on his mixtape, Kill Bloodclott Bill.[1] The song, which contains a sample of "Bang, Bang" by Nancy Sinatra, was nominated for Rap Recording of the Year at the 2005 Juno Awards.[2]

In 2003, Kardinal's album Firestarter Vol. 2: The F-Word Theory was shelved after Geffen Records absorbed his label, MCA Records.[1] The song was directed at major labels, which he referred to as "Bill". In the third verse he raps: "This ain't just some music story / It's about how real niggas return for glory / Bill tried to leave me out in the cold to die / I told y'all before we just multiply."[3]
