In 1993, a legal battle ensued between Warner Bros. and Prince over the artistic and financial control of his musical output. During the intense lawsuit, he appeared in public with the word "slave" written on his cheek and started going by the name The Artist Formerly Known as Prince.

Yes Prince was wide awake! He was never willing to sell his soul to the ruling class. He was clever enough to realize that by changing his name to a symbol, they couldn't force him to comply. Since no one could say (pronounce) the symbol, they all started calling him TAFKAP. He outsmarted the system! Rest in peace brother Prince!

I didn't know the back story either. It all makes sense.
