Mourning The Macho Man: Did You Know That Randy Savage Was Also A Rapper?
|The Macho Man|
Many of us remember Savage as one of the bastions of the golden age of professional wrestling. But we bet you don't remember his short-lived career as a recording artist: Macho Man released a rap album (yes, a rap album) in 2003, entitled Be A Man.
It has some tracks on it that stretch the boundaries of cheese -- including a diss track aimed at longtime rival Hulk Hogan. The title track, "Be a Man," features the following choice lyric: "The joke's on you, so Hulk, what you gonna do / Probably nothing 'cause you're a real big punk."
Who knew such poetry existed beneath that neon cowboy hat and mirrored shades?
In memory of this one-of-a-kind character, we suggest you snap into a Slim Jim, click on the jump, and have a listen as an American original waxes poetic on his songs "Be A Man" and "I'm Back." (Or, in his words: "Hope you're ready / The Savage Man's gonna rip the microphone like confetti.")
