In 2006, the track was included as the 17th and final track on the first disc of Ultimate. Basic tracking took place on 18 September 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, during the same set of sessions that produced songs and remixes for the Cream maxi-single (notable since some of the tracks on the maxi-single contain musical elements used also in My Name Is Prince). The track is essentially a solo recording by Prince, with Tony M. adding a rap. It contains brief repeated samples of I Wanna Be Your Lover, Partyup and Controversy before Prince’s vocals begin. The track was not initially intended for an album, but was added as the second track (first song) on a March 1992, configuration of , displacing Sexy M.F. as the opening song. It was kept as the second track (first song) on a late Summer configuration, before many of the album’s segues were removed for release, making My Name Is Prince the opening track. Remixes by outside producers were made in Summer 1992, for use on the My Name Is Prince maxi-single.In 1993, Prince gave the creators of The Simpsons TV show permission to use the backing track to create the track My Name Is Bart, with new lyrics and lead vocals delivered by Bart Simpson (played by Nancy Cartwright), for The Yellow Album. The album was delayed from 1993 to 1999, and Prince withdrew the track during the delay. Although the new track had no direct input by Prince, he was involved in the creation of the track, so it is included here.

(Other definitions for funky that I’ve seen before include “Soulful (music); cowardly” , “Having a strong dance rhythm” , “Stylish and exciting” , “Drawing back” , “Of jazz, earthy and soulful” .)

Because the tune is taken out of the conceptualized context of the album, the lyrics seem a bit curious at times.” A reviewer from Bray People described “My Name Is Prince” as a “self-mocking explosion of throbbing funk.” Randy Clark from Cashbox commented, “Well, all hail his funky high-ness. Sure, he’s got $100,000,000.00 and now he can blow his own horn louder than anyone. This song can be interpreted a few ways. 1) a slammin’ funky, but meaningless dance track; 2) his self-obsession is blocking his ability to write anything poignant; 3) the man is a full-blown, Napoleonistic, megalomaniac who has now launched himself into the same self-glorifying world as Michael Jackson and Madonna. Naturally, he produces himself.”

The accompanying music video for the song was filmed in August and September 1992 and directed by Parris Patton. It features American actress Kirstie Alley as news reporter Vanessa Bartholomew and Lauren Green as a studio anchor. In the video, fans are rioting to see Prince perform onstage. However, instead of performing onstage, he dances with his band in an alleyway while shooting his latest music video, wearing the outfit from the single’s artwork (a police uniform and cap with chainmail obscuring his face), singing into a microphone in the shape of a gun, and inciting riots and general chaos.

Dave Sholin from the Gavin Report said, “Clever as ever and fuuunnky to the max, this track once again displays how versatile, creative and unpredictable Prince truly is, and why he must be considered musical royalty.” Dave Bennun from Melody Maker wrote, “Here we find Prince in hard and funky work-out mode, no great shakes compared to the likes of “Erotic City”, “Gett Off” and “Sexy Muthaf***a”, but a moderate-to-acceptable taster for his new concept album”. Parry Gettelman from Orlando Sentinel felt it’s “one of the weaker numbers” of the album, adding, “It’s a killer parody of Hammer-style hip-hop. The beat is funkier than anything Hammer ever came up with, and the braggadocio is hilarious. However, the repetitive chorus and Prince’s uncharacteristically harsh vocals don’t wear well.”
“My Name Is Prince” returned Prince and the NPG to radio and the Top 40 in the US after their previous single, the provocative “Sexy MF” failed to chart on any airplay charts. “My Name Is Prince” received modest airplay on Mainstream Urban and Rhythmic radio stations, earning respectable positions of number 25 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, number 20 on the Rhythmic Top 40, and number 36 on the Hot 100. In the UK, “My Name Is Prince” was another Top 10 hit for Prince and the NPG, peaking at number seven.”My Name Is Prince” is a song by American musician Prince and the New Power Generation, released as the second single from the 1992 Love Symbol album. The song is about Prince himself and his musical prowess. The rap sequence is performed by NPG member Tony M. The intro to the song features vocal samples from Prince’s earlier songs “I Wanna Be Your Lover”, “Partyup”, and “Controversy”.In an 2020 retrospective review, Andy Healy from Albumism remarked that the song is “ironically titled”. Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic called it a “dance smash”, stating that the album “has Prince’s best dance tracks since The Black Album.” In 2019, Alexis Petridis from The Guardian ranked “My Name Is Prince” number 27 in his list of “Prince’s 50 Greatest Singles”, stating that it reasserted the musician’s authority “in style.” He added, “Its intro listed his hits, its lyric switched between proclaiming himself divinely chosen and fretting about judgment day, and its music dealt in heavy breakbeats and noise that suggested he had been listening to Public Enemy.”

The B-sides to the single are “Sexy Mutha”, a clean remix of “Sexy MF”, and “2 Whom It May Concern”, a preview of songs from the then-upcoming Love Symbol album.
