Goldnigga is a three-part track included as the first track (Goldnigga Pt. 1), eighth track (sixth song, Goldnigga Pt. 2) and sixteenth and final track (eleventh song, Goldnigga Pt. 3) on the New Power Generation's first 'solo' album Gold Nigga (first, seventh and fifteenth tracks on later pressings of the CD).

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in late April 1992, at Studios 301, Sydney, Australia (during the same set of sessions as Deuce & A Quarter, Goldie's Parade, Everybody Get On Up, A 1,000 Hugs And Kisses and Baby Doll). The song contains musical quotations and one spoken quotation from Get Up, Stand Up by The Wailers (from their 1973 album Burnin, although often attributed as a song by Bob Marley), written by Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. The track was later split into three parts, most likely in late 1992 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

In 1993, a brief sample of Goldnigga (although not directly taken from Pt. 1, Pt. 2 or Pt.3) was used in a Segue from Carmen Electra's album Carmen Electra, as if heard while scanning through a radio dial (clips of Hit U In The Socket, In A Word Or 2, The Voice, Sexy M.F. and With This Tear are also heard).
