"Cut Her Off" (Also known as "It Ain't Nothin To Cut That B***h Off) is a rap song by American rapper K Camp from his debut EP In Due Time. It was released on December 11, 2013 as the EP's first single. The song features additional vocals from fellow Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz and its production was handled by Will-A-Fool. "Cut Her Off" has since peaked at number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at numbers 5 on the Hot Rap Songs chart. It also has 27 million plays on Spotify of 9/16/2016

Critical reception[edit]

"Cut Her Off" was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. Complex named it the forty-first best song of the first half of 2014. In his review Justin Davis said, "K Camp has started the year with a number of hits, but "Cut Her Off" is undoubtedly his catchiest. The song's subject matter is simple enough—Camp is fed up with the stress from clingy women—but his melodies grab the listener to repeat his rebellious verses verbatim. It's literally the rap version of Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable." Add in an equally wacky 2 Chainz verse and "Cut Her Off" is easily the breakup anthem of the year."[1]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Cut Her Off" debuted at number 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of April 26, 2014. Ten weeks later, it peaked at number 49 on the week of July 5, 2014. It spent a total of twenty weeks on the chart.[2] As of September 16, 2016, Cut Her Off has 27 million streams on Stopify, 71 million views on YouTube & has peaked at number 22 on the rhythmic charts.

Music video[edit]

Directed by Alex Nazari, the song's music video features K Camp being harassed by various women, while he ignores them. In the middle part, K Camp answers a payphone call from 2 Chainz asking him to come to a restaurant. He enters through the back of the kitchen and meets with 2 Chainz who's eating with a bunch of women at the table. The video premiered on the artist's YouTube page on May 21, 2014.[3]

Remix[edit]

The official remix to "Cut Her Off" features Lil Boosie, Too Short and YG. The music video for the official remix was released on July 15, 2014. In the video, the three rappers stunt on a set surrounded by nice cars and a group of women.[4]
