Oilcan is the third track on the New Power Generation's first 'solo' album Gold Nigga (second track on later pressings of the CD). It is the only instrumental track on the album, and the shortest track, at only 42 seconds.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely that basic tracking took place in August-December 1992, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Johnny, Guess Who's Knockin', Black M.F. In The House, and the album's segues).
