"Temperature's Rising" is the third and final single from Mobb Deep's album, The Infamous, featuring Crystal Johnson. Similar to Nas' "One Love", Mobb Deep's song is in the form of a letter to a recently incarcerated friend. In the song, the narrator reveals that he is covering up evidence of his imprisoned friends' criminal actions, and speaks of his paranoia, fearing that the police are closing in on him. It contains sample of "Where There is Love" by Patrice Rushen. There is also an original verison that went unreleased due to sample clearance issues. That version contains samples of "UFO" by ESG & "Body Heat" by Quincy Jones.

The b-side "Give Up the Goods (Just Step)" is about the life of a "stick up artist", and features Big Noyd.

In 2006 the song was included on the greatest hits album Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep.

There is also a remix to the single.
