R.I.P., Macho Man Randy Savage: Five Best Moments of His Rap Career

Categories: r.i.p.
Macho Man Randy Savage died today in a car accident in Tampa, Fla, according to TMZ.  Florida Highway Patrol says Savage was "driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median through oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a tree."

The wrestling legend born Randall Mario Poffo suffered a heart attack around 9:25 a.m., says his brother Lanny Poffo, and lost control of his vehicle. Savage was taken to Largo Medical center, where he died from his injuries. He was 58.

Savage's wife of a year, Lynn, was in the vehicle but survived with "minor injuries." According to officials, both were wearing their seatbelts and alcohol was not involved.


Macho Man began wrestling in the WWF in 1985 and became a superstar with his trademark catchphrase "Ooooooh Yeaahhhhh." He released a rap album in 2003 entitled Be a Man. Here are the five best musical moments of his rap career.

1. "Speaking From the Heart"

This single was Macho Man's first taste of rap, produced by American Idol's Simon Cowell. "Speaking From the Heart" was from 1993's Wrestlemania: The Album, which also had a Bret Hart ballad and an Undertaker disco endeavor

2. Lex Luger Rap! 

Macho Man raps about Lex Luger, one of the Four Horsemen, the Total Package.

3. "My Perfect Friend" 

This song about his friend Curt "Mr. Perfect" Hennig was co-written by his brother Lanny "the Genius" Poffo. It's as poignant as any wrestler/rapper tribute can be.

4. "Be A Man"

This one was Savage's Hulk Hogan diss track--and, actually, probably one of the best songs on the album.

5. 50 Cent Approved!

All that rapping finally got Macho Man an endorsement from 50 cent. You will be missed.
