Just Another Sucker is the first track on 94 East's first collection of studio recordings Minneapolis Genius, and, around the time of the album's release, Just Another Sucker was released as the album's first single.

The track is the only one on the collection to feature writing input by Prince (co-written by Pepé Willie), and features Prince on guitar, synthesizer, keyboards and drums. The track has featured on every collection of 94 East's early recordings.

In 1992, it was included as the first track on the first disc of Minneapolis Genius - Featuring Prince (as Just Another Sucker (Vocal)).

In 1995, the original, previously-unreleased, version was included as the first track on the first disc of Symbolic Beginning (re-released in 1999 as The Legends Collection).

In 2000, it was included as the first track on 94 East Featuring Prince. Also the same year, it was included as the first track on the first disc of One Man Jam.

In 2002, it was included as the first track on the first disc of If You Feel Like Dancin'.

A preliminary version of the song was recorded in Summer 1978 at Sound 80, Minneapolis, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Dance To The Music Of The World and Lovin' Cup). As with the other tracks included on Minneapolis Genius, additional recording was done by Pepé Willie, for which details are not known.
