Mobb Deep- Drop A Gem On Em

Artist: Mobb Deep
Title: Drop A Gem On Em
Album: Hell on Earth
Record Label: Loud House
Catalog Number: 1828
Year Released: 1996

This song was released during the height of the of the East Coast and West Coast rivalry and was directed towards 2pac after he insulted Mobb Deep in the song ‘Hit Em Up’ where he says “Oh yeah Mobb Deep, you wanna fuck with us? You Little young ass mutha fuckas, don't one of you niggas got sickle-cell or something?” Mobb Deep attacks 2pac and refers to his shooting in New York when they drop the line “Who Shot Ya? You'd probably scream louder than an opera, New York gotcha, now you wanna use my mob as a crutch”. The song and the lyrics that Mobb Deep rapped added fuel to the existing tensions between the New York and California hip hop scenes specifically centered on 2pac.
