Black M.F. In The House is the seventh track (fifth song) on the New Power Generation’s first ‘solo’ album Gold Nigga (sixth track and fourth song on later pressings of the CD).
While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking likely took place in late 1991 or early 1992, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The harmonica is sampled from I Can’t Stand It by The Chambers Brothers (from The Time Has Come 1967, written by Lester Chambers, also released as a single in 1968). The same part was also sampled on Thieves In The Temple. The track was originally planned as the b-side on a May 1992, configuration of the Sexy M.F. single, the first single from Prince’s 14th album (and therefore would have been credited to Prince and the New Power Generation), but since Sexy M.F. was unlikely to generate much airplay, Black M.F. In The House was replaced by the more radio-friendly track Strollin’.
