Props N’ Pounds was initially offered as an mp3 download as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 4 (along with Hit U In The Socket by Rosie Gaines, Sex In My Bones by Fonky Bald Heads and NPG Ahdio Show # 4), and on the same day, a different version of the song (with some additional parts, but without others) was included in NPG Ahdio Show # 4. In 2004, the version which had been an individual download was included as the sixth track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2000 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track is built around portions of MTV News anchor Kurt Loder talking about Prince in glowing terms.
