"What about we drop the video just out of no where. I'll even cry, that'll get em"

It's difficult to say for certain without more context, but it seems to be a suggestion that a video be left for someone to find, and do it in a way that no one knows where it came from. This would be the first sentence.

A simple version might be, "What if we leave the video anonymously?"

The second sentence seems to refer to the idea that if a person, usually a woman, cries, that motivates people to be helpful. So a simple version might be, "I'll cry, and that will make them want to be helpful".

Maybe it can be helpful to say that; before sending that sentence here, I looked for "drop" and "out of nowhere"(from the first sentence) in dictionaries and I came across these definitions:

drop: verb (BE/MAKE AVAILABLE)

[ I or T ] informal
to become available for people to buy, listen to, or watch, especially using the internet; to make something available like this:
It's an exciting time for her, with the tour starting and the record about to drop.
We heard that rapper Dave was about to drop a new album.

(Because the first sentence was about the "video", I got this definition)

Cambridge Dictionary


out of nowhere: idiom
Definition of out of nowhere
1: from an unlikely beginning
She rose to fame out of nowhere.
2: in a sudden and unexpected way
The car came out of nowhere!
Suddenly, out of nowhere, she offered me the job.
From out of nowhere he asked her if she was having an affair.
