"Macho Man" Randy Savage - Be a Man (2003)

I was a fan of Randall Mario Poffo, better known to the world at large as Randy "Macho Man" Savage as a kid. His on-mic hijinx were second only to two other favorites of mine from back in the day, Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes....

I was saddened to hear about his passing and decided to share a little bit of nuttiness he left behind for us to all enjoy, his 2003 rap album, Be a Man

From Wikipedia:

On October 7, 2003, Savage released a rap album titled Be a Man. It includes a tribute to "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig as well as a diss track aimed at Hulk Hogan. While more a fan of hard rock, he chose rap due to his lack of singing ability. Savage promoted Be A Man with a concert tour featuring Brian Adams as his bodyguard and Ron Harris as touring manager. During this time, the development of a second album was already in progress with Savage exclaiming, "We are absolutely going to have more records." However, no further albums were released.
