Hey, Man, Smell My Finger is the sixth studio album by American funk musician George Clinton, released October 12, 1993 on Paisley Park Records. So far, it is Clinton’s second and last release for the Paisley Park label, owned by Prince.

The album features an array of musical guests including Prince, Dallas Austin, Humpty Hump from Digital Underground, Ice Cube, N’Dea Davenport, Dr. Dre, and Herbie Hancock, as well P-Funk alumni including Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, Maceo Parker, and Fred Wesley. Hey, Man, Smell My Finger furthers Clinton’s incorporation of hip hop elements such as electronically produced beats, rapping by Clinton, and sampling of older P-Funk material.

The album received critical acclaim from most music critics and was followed by a supporting tour. It went out of print soon after Paisley Park Records folded in late 1993.
