Rufus Arthur Johnson, better known as Bizarre (born July 5, 1976 in Detroit, Michigan)[1], is an American recording artist best known for his work with Detroit hip-hop group D12.

He has appeared in many magazines including Rolling Stone and The Source. His story-telling rap style consists mostly of exaggerated instances of sex, child abuse, and rape (freely mentioning domestic violence, incest, and bestiality). It is mostly an attempt to be comedic, but also to vent the frustrations from his life and childhood.
