  • The act of snitching, ratting, or otherwise disclosing information meant to hurt or discredit someone else. This a play on tips and selling someone out.

  • Depends on the context I guess. In most cases it means to snitch, or tattle tale.
    But I mean, you could drop a dime of weed too.... but thats probably not it haha

  • To tell on someone. I'm guessing it derived from how you would hear a dime drop into a public phone when you call went through.
