Marco Rubio interviewed in GQ magazine
Talks about rap!
Some say Sen. Marco Rubio is already gearing up for some big political moves in 2016. If that includes an interview with GQ, on stands Tuesday, they’re right. In it, he waxes political on everything from Castro to his love of rap. “Hip-hop’s 30 years old now, and it’s become indistinguishable from pop music in general,” he says. “Many people say Nicki Minaj is a rapper, but she’s also a singer. Kanye’s a rapper, but his songs aren’t pure rap anymore. You’ve got the guy from Miami, Pitbull, who’s on TV advertising for Dr. Pepper.” More about Pitbull -- it didn't stop there. GQ asked if Rubio thought the local artist was "cheesy." His answer? "His songs are all party songs. There's no message for him, compared to like an Eminem. But look, there's always been a role for that in American music. There's always been a party person, but he's a young guy. You know, maybe as he gets older, he'll reflect in his music more as time goes on. I mean, he's not Tupac. He's not gonna be writing poetry."
