It's On (D̵r̵.̵ ̵D̵r̵e̵) 187um Killa is the second EP by rapper Eazy-E released in 1993, as a response to Dr. Dre's The Chronic. The EP was certified 2x Multi-Platinum in 1994 by the RIAA,[5] it is Eazy-E's most successful release, peaking at #5 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, while selling 110,600 copies in its first week.[6] This is the last completed work Eazy made before he died in 1995.

Album information[edit]

The EP contained the Dr. Dre diss track "Real Muthaphuckkin G's". Eazy-E released music videos for "Any Last Werdz" and "Real Muthaphuckkin G's", it went multi-platinum and became one of Eazy-E's most popular recordings. Eazy-E was originally intending to release a follow up to Eazy-Duz-It named Temporary Insanity, which was going to be released as a double album.[7] However, after the several insults Dr. Dre made in The Chronic, Eazy-E decided to release this EP. Dr. Dre is mentioned on every track but three: "Gimmie That Nutt", "Boyz N Tha Hood (G-Mix)" and "Any Last Werdz." The album is the first release under the newly established distribution deal with Relativity and Epic that allowed Ruthless ownership of its master recordings.
