Bob George” is one of Prince’s most unusual songs. In the song, Prince assumes the identity of a profane, gun-wielding alter ego who dismisses the figure of Prince as “that skinny motherfucker with the high voice” . The name for the track was a combination of Bob Cavallo (former manager), and Nelson George who was felt to have become very critical of Prince. “Bob George” features a growling monologue that is slowed down to the point of being almost unrecognizable as Prince. Some interpret the track as a commentary on the glorification of violence and misogyny inherent in the gangsta rap musical genre, which was in its infancy at the time. The voice at the end of the song that says bizarre is actually a stock sound from the Fairlight CMI IIx library, pitched up.
