Listen up, Lil Wayne. Florida Senator Marco Rubio has some thoughts on how you stack up compared to legendary West coast rapper Tupac.
After Lil Wayne recently boasted in a song that “I ain’t 2Pac, I’m the new ‘Pac,” Rubio chimed in when asked his thoughts by TMZ as he walked through Reagan International Airport in Washington D.C.
“Tupac lived in a different time. These guys have some message in what they’re saying, but I think they’re largely entertainers,” Rubio said, picking up steam.
“I think Tupac was more someone who was trying to inform us about what was going on, and he did it through entertainment.”
TMZ tracking Rubio is further proof that the young Republican’s star is rising, after a Time magazine cover anointed him the savior of the party. He also gave the high-profile GOP response to the president’s State of the Union speech, which gained plenty of attention after a thirsty Rubio awkwardly lurched to the left for a bottle of Poland Spring.
Lil Wayne has been hearing from well-known Cuban-Americans lately, after Pitbull made him the target of a diss track because of comments Lil Wayne made about Mr. Worldwide’s hometown, Miami Heat.
“You talk Miami, yes you talkin’ Heat/Moral of the story, don’t [expletive] where you eat,” Pitbull rapped in a not-so-veiled response to Lil Wayne.
For his part, Rubio made his thoughts clear when it comes not only to Lil Wayne but also to all other rappers out there.
“There’s only one Tupac,” he said, before getting in a waiting car.
