Be a man, Hogan! Come on, don’t be scared!

Those are some of the lyrics on the title track of ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage’s 2003 rap album Be A Man, which you may have forgotten about. Or perhaps you purged it from your memory. Either way, Macho Madness is hitting music stores again as the album will get a limited re-release on April 22, Record Store Day. There will only be 1,000 copies sold.

The promotional material reads: ““Macho Man” Randy Savage was a WWE wrestling superstar with dazzling over-the-top costumes. His signature phrase, “Ohhh yeah!” won over wrestling fans worldwide and eventually was seen in nearly every Slim Jim commercial. He even played a wrestler “Bone Saw” McGraw in the 2002 movie, Spider-Man. His music career started in 1993 making his debut WrestleMania:The Album along side of other top wrestlers such as Bret “The Hitman” Hart, The Undertaker, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and others. On October 7, 2003, Savage released his debut rap/hiphop album titled Be a Man, which has sold over the years for staggering amounts on eBay. It includes a tribute song to a fellow wrestler “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig who passed earlier that year. It also included the title track “Be a Man” that was aimed right at fellow wrestling icon and former Mega Powers tag-team partner Hulk Hogan. Fortunately, before Savage’s death he had the opportunity to bury the hatchet with Hogan after a decade long feud that many thought was just a marketing gimmick. This rap album includes DJ Kool on the very club-like vibe, “Hit The Floor”, the second single which would have been amazing to see live. It also includes Big K, Brian O, Da Raskulls, Inc., Eliott Harris, Shianna Raymona, Mo Blaze and Smokke. Now, first time on vinyl, this amazing rap album has been completely remastered for vinyl and includes a 2-sided full color printed insert with photos and album history and comes in a black poly-lined sleeve with hype-sticker on Purple vinyl.
