"I got 5 on it" is a phrase meaning to pay half of a dime bag (a $10 bag of marijuana) with another person. The lyrics in the original song clearly convey this meaning.
“Kinda broke so ya know all I gots five, I got five”
“Unless you pull out the fat, crispy five dollar bill on the real before its history”
“I got 5 on it, let's go half on a sack”
Later remixes attempt to modify the original meaning. In Dru Down's verse he states the "5" can refer to either $500 or a Mercedes-Benz 500E for the particularly wealthy, while Numskull suggests the practice can also be used to assist in paying for alcoholic beverages such as Hennessy, Seagrams or malt liquor. Others suggest the more likely interpretation, that the "5" refers to half a "bag" of Marihuana, since usually a sack is priced at 10$. It can be argued, that this analogy is used to reflect the financial situation of those, the rappers affiliate(d) themselves with.
..."let's go twos on an eighth"
