"Drop a Gem on 'em" was a promotional single for Mobb Deep's Hell on Earth album. This song is a response to 2Pac's feud with the group. It was recorded, and first released for airplay when he was still alive, but released on the album after his death. The song contains a sample from "Can't Help but Love You" by The Whispers. The cryptic lyrics in the song caused controversy after 2Pac's death. Listeners of the song and supporters of the east coast side of the infamous East Coast/West Coast Feud of the mid 90's started to believe Mobb Deep actualy had something to do with 2Pac's murder. Sighting lines like "I had the whole New York State aiming at your face, at the gate bottom line off top soon as you came through shots through dont even know the half of my crew" and "Your days are numbered, in low digits, you look suspicious, suspect niggas is bitches"
