It's not in the eggcorn database.

By Daily Kos contributor "Devilstower, 17 May 2009:

"Anyone ease dropping on their conversations, whether in person or in a
'raw' documentary, is bound to be subjected to language that sounds
heartless or prejudiced."

Google Groups (Usenet) has a couple hundred hits--some are just collocations
of the words, not the eggcorn--going back to 1990:, "AMC Update Thursday 10/25," 26 Oct 1990:

"Swill came running up to the door so he could ease drop--he couldn't wait
to hear what happened."
