    being clap free

    Jordan says about Lemmons drug brought by Donnie:

    Jordan: Look at these babies. Boy, Donnie really knew how to celebrate. He said he was saving these for a special occasion. Like a birthday, or being clap free, or our money arriving safely in Switzerland.

    What does "being clap free" mean?

    It should be hyphenated: clap-free.
