“Macho Man” Randy Savage is beloved by pro wrestling fans and inspired numerous generations of pro wrestlers after him, including the likes of CM Punk. While he dazzled as a pro wrestler, the same cannot be said about his music career. That said, it appears that his ‘Be A Man’ rap album will be getting a limited release.

The rap album released by Macho Man Randy Savage in October 2003 will be getting a very limited release on purple vinyl. The album is mostly remembered by fans as they mocked Savage’s bars.

The studio album featured a tribute to Mr Perfect called “Perfect Friend” and also a track about Hulk Hogan, which is what made the album infamous in the first place. The track largely had to do with Savage’s animosity towards Hogan.

With Record Store Day set to take place on April 22 2023, ‘Be A Man’ is getting a modern release, with only 1,000 copies being sold. The promotional material for the release gives a good idea about what fans can expect.


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.”

It is unclear how much of a demand there is for a new pressing of his album. The Record Store Day website can be found here and includes all the details one would want regarding the album.
