Gangster Glam is a non-album track released on the maxi-single of Gett Off, the first single from Prince’s thirteenth album Diamonds And Pearls and the first single to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation. In the UK, it was included as the third and final track on the maxi-single of Cream, the album’s second single (the track had not been included on UK versions of the Gett Off single). A video of the track was included as the fourth track on the Gett Off home video.

Specific recording dates are not known, but as the track borrows heavily from the music of Gett Off (recorded 10 May 1991), it is likely that the track was recorded in early Summer 1991, most likely at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. A single release of Gangster Glam was planned, with tracklists for a 7" single and a 12" single existing, containing remixes of the track.
