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."

Lmfao Lil Wayne is on drugs, that has o be the only reason why he thinks he is the new "pac." Tupac has more talent in his pinky toe nail than LOL Wayne will ever even think he has.

I think it is very cool that a politician would let us in on a possibly not-very-popular hobby!

Okay...more importantly, how can we turn this into a negative and blame it on Bush?

All these Republications are flipping the script now that they lost the 2012 election. I'm in FL and this dude is just trying to fit in, look at Rick Scott, that skeezer is flipping too - in hopes of getting re-elected!
I'm just stating the FACTS!
