Senator Marco Rubio

Lil Wayne Ain't No Tupac

EXCLUSIVE

022613_marco_rubio_launchIt took him 2 weeks, but Senator Marco Rubio finally delivered a smooth, eloquent GOP response -- to Lil Wayne calling himself the new Tupac.

Sen. Rubio -- a self-professed hip-hop superfan -- was at Reagan National Airport when he shot down Weezy recently making the bold claim ... "I ain't 2Pac, I'm the new 'Pac."

Totally off the cuff, Sen. Rubio told us, "Tupac lived in a different time. These guys have some message in what they're saying, but I think they're largely entertainers."

He added, "I think Tupac was more someone who was trying to inform us about what was going on, and he did it through entertainment."

The Senator also talked Wu-Tang Clan and Dave Chappelle ... it's pretty cool ... for a politician.

Oh, and he said it all without a single sip of water.

FUN FACT: Rubio's fave rap songs of all-time are NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" ... Eminem's "Lose Yourself," and 'Pac's "Killuminati."

Lil Wayne does it through ill placed ego, watching sweaty men in shorts run up and down a basketball court and the enjoyment of the taste of random peen.

Nobody in the history of hip hop would ever openly admit to being a republican. The very essence of hip hop is the antithesis of conservative. Don't let them fool you, instead be offended that they would think this ploy might work.

This man will be the first hispanic president of the U.S., If he wants to be, that is. Given that the younger generations will tire of the likes of muslim celebrity wannabes and rapid increase in hispanic populations.

Hate Hip-hop. A trained monkey can do it. Not music.

Love Rubio. Hopefully, he'll be our next Prez. Once we get rid of the corrupt moron in the Oval Office now.

yeah, it's kinda about time understanding of hip hop made it into the white house. an era that has wholly defined not only the united states, but literally the whole world. can't just keep ignoring it (politically). i mean in comparison, the 'homo agenda'?! 5% no one really cares about dominate EVERY political arena. no one gives a hoot about the gays.
