Marco Rubio: Hip-Hop Connoisseur
Posted by KingShamus on February 27, 2013
The Senator from Florida, dropping some made rap science on TMZ.
When it comes to early/mid 90’s rap, the stuff that came out of the Biggie-Tupac East Coast-West Coast feud can’t hold a candle to the weirdly endearing Wu-Tang Clan and all their various side-projects and solo discs. And Jay-Z hasn’t put out a decent record since the “Big Pimpin'” days. But that’s just me.
Anyhoo, look at how Rubio is working the media. A Republican isn’t supposed to know anything about modern music, much less have an opinion about old skool and contemporary rapppers. Yet here’s Marco Rubio, talking credibly about urban music. Kinda amazing.
I cannot wait for Harry Reid to tell us of his long standing love of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
UPDATE: Sorry my post came out kinda janky before. I stink at teh intertubez. I got those links and embeds fixed, so you can almost read my yakety-yak now.
