“Macho Man” Randy Savage is beloved for pro wrestling fans, but he didn’t make the same impression in rap music. His 2003 album, “Be A Man,” is mostly remembered by fans as they mocked Savage’s bars, and now a new generation will get that opportunity.

The infamous rap CD by Randy Savage is coming back with a limited edition vinyl LP pressing. They will release the record in limited quantities, around 1,000 only will be made.

Record Store Day is dropping this limited edition pressing of Randy Savage’s album. The special event is meant to help draw fans to actual record stores on April 22nd’s “Record Store Day.”

A limited edition vinyl LP pressing will be released in limited quantities of just 1,000 copies for the 4/22 Record Store Day promotional event, a special event designed to drive buyers into physical record stores.  


Promotional material for the release notes, “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’s unclear how much of a demand there is for a new pressing of his album, but we are about to find out. Sadly, Randy Savage is no longer around to enjoy this new focus on his outing in the rap game.You may visit www.recordstoreday.com for more details.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
