Marco Rubio on Lil Wayne's Tupac Claims: "There's Only One Tupac" (VIDEO)

When we were busy making fun of Sen. Marco Rubio's totally lame Spotify list, we didn't realize he was such a big fan of the Thug Life. 

TMZ accosted a friendly and chatty Rubio at Reagan National Airport and asked him about the whole Lil Wayne-Miami dis debacle. Specifically, they addressed whether Tunechi is the new Tupac, as he claimed at Birdman's birthday party last week. And he got deep on the subject. "There's only one Tupac," he said, adding that rappers like Lil Wayne are just entertainers, but 'Pac? "I think Tupac was more someone that was trying to inform us what was going on, and he did it through entertainment." 

This is good stuff. Click on for the video and full interview and Wu-Tang talk.
