RE: Fuck It, It's Gross and Rainy and Monday: Let's Listen to Mirah All Day...uh, Fuck NO!! Let's Listen to Macho Man Randy Savage

Macho Man Randy Savage, his real name was Randy Mario Poffo, died one year ago yesterday, May 20th, 2011. Now, I'm not a guy who likes watching wrestlers wrestle, although my brother did, but Macho Man Randy Savage will always be my favorite, uh, favorite wrestler who was also Slim Jimpitch man!! Like, I never understood what he was saying. "Napinnew a nim nim!" ...was what was he usually said!? I think? Wait, has there been any other Slim Jim™ pitch men? Whatever, so...I had no idea till like, last week, MMRS had a fucking RECORDING CAREER!? And also, that he had died in a car crash after a possible heart attack. Anyway, these two tracks are my personal faves from his seminal rap compact disc of the early oughties...I hope you're sitting down.

"I'm Back" is Macho, breaking it down as the new king of hiphop...of 2003, duh!!! Do you wanna know, IS RANDY DOING HIS THING? Oh, fuck YEAH he's back..."with good chemistry (him) and big three are about to shock the whole industry!" Yes, it's true, the shock waves from this album are still being felt. Wicked.

"Whats It All About" is a tender joint about how MMRS feels about his pretty lady: "I wanna keep you happy, not just financially, but mentally, physically, romantically"...truth y'all, truth.

Yeah, there you go! WHO KNEW?! Amazon has copies on offer, new copies rate about $55...yeah, I'm not kidding. And if his jams ain't enough, dig this soundboard full of awesome quotes!!

The best part of that album was most obviously, "Be A Man" which is also the title track. It's a diss track on Hulk Hogan.

"They call you Hollywood/don't make me laugh/Cuz your movies and your actin' skills are both trash/Your movies straight to video the box office can't stand/While I got myself a feature role in Spider Man"

Second place goes to the album closer, "My Perfect Friend" which is most obviously a heartfelt song about the loss of his good friend, Curt Hennig AKA Mr. Perfect.

I'm surprised Macho and Hulk never rap-battled!

I agree with the 1st poster, Jesse Ventura is a true renaissance man...but I did spend some of my day listening to this while wearing the sweet macho man t-shirt I got off e-bay last week.
