It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa is an EP by rapper Eazy-E released in 1993. Eazy-E's 2nd EP is a response to Dr. Dre's The Chronic. The EP was certified 2x Multi-Platinum in 1994 by the RIAA.[2] It is Eazy's most successful release, peaking on #5 on Billboard 200 and #1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, while selling 110,600 copies in its first week.[3] This is the last completed album Eazy made before his death.

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.[4] 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 except "Gimmie That Nutt" and "Boyz N Tha Hood (G-Mix)" And Any Last Werdz. The album is the first release under the newly established distribution deal with Relativity that allowed Ruthless Records ownership of its master recordings.
