Three Shots is an unreleased track by poet/rapper Ninety-9 (real name : Dietra Moses) Prince (as ) worked on in late-Spring – early Summer 1993, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as 40 Ounces, Simlac, The Mood For Love and Stained Glass). There might be other versions of the song with her own backing music as the five tracks known to have been worked or re-worked by Prince were registered on September 1st 1993 as musical compositions by Dietra Moses alone at the Library Of Congress.
It is unclear whether this short-lived collaboration was intended to lead to an album or to a particular project. Prince sampled the tracks heavily in 1993-5 recordings, however. A looped sample of "the bullets go bang" from the track was used in The Good Life (Bullets Go Bang Remix). The track itself, however, remains unreleased. Additionally, a looped sample of "'cause that’s my only mission" was used in Right Back Here In My Arms as well as a sample of "big fun" on Big Fun. In 2000, Ninety-9 released a song titled "Willow" which recycles a line from Three Shots.
