2 Nigs United 4 West Compton is the seventh song on Prince's sixteenth album "The Black Album" (originally planned for release as his tenth album, albeit with no artist credit).

In 2002, a live version (almost completely different from the original) was included as the fourth track on the live release One Nite Alone... The Aftershow: It Ain't Over.


Recording process

Initial tracking took place on 9 December 1986 at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, CA, USA (two days after Bob George and Walkin' In Glory, the day before Le Grind).

The track, along with Bob George and Le Grind, was recorded for a birthday party Prince was hosting for Sheila E. on 11 December 1986.
