Before Pac was sent to jail he did an article in Vibe talking about "Thug Life". While he was in prison he heard Mob Deep on the radio sayin' "Thug Life, We Still Livin' It." So Pac sent out some of his homies to a Mob Deep concert and start screaming out "Thug Life" but they didn't acknowledge this so 2Pac took this as an insult. Mob Deep think they is it on record but they don't have the balls to say it off record. 2Pac didn't even consider Mob Deep to be on the same level as far as he was concerned he was on a Higher Level than them. He even dissed them because one of them has sickle cell. Mob Deep retaliated with "Drop a Gem on Em."
