And followed it up with The Godfather and Jay-Z. RT @emzanotti: Rubio just quoted Wiz Khalifa. This is now what can be termed a “mic drop.”

Still laughing at Rubio’s comparison of Wiz Khalifa’s song, “Work Hard Play Hard” and the conflict going on with Obama and the Senate.

In The 12th Hour Of Rand Paul’s Epic Filibuster, Marco Rubio Quoted Wiz Khalifa, Jay-Z, And ‘The Godfather’ via …

— Leon De Silva (@avtariuz) March 7, 2013

Rubio cited rappers Wiz Khalifa and Jay-Z and also quoted several lines from “The Godfather.”

Rubio read a famous line given by Al Pacino’s character in “The Godfather”: “Don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family ever again.” Rubio compared that situation to the relationship between the Senate and President Barack Obama on the administration’s drone program.

“We deserve to have the rights to these answers,” Rubio said. “We have a job to do that we’re held responsible for.”

Rubio also alluded to the “modern-day poet” Wiz Khalifa’s song, “Work Hard, Play Hard,” and Jay-Z’s “A Week Ago.”

Video of Jay-Z shout-out:

Video of The Godfather hat tip:

Well, that’s one way to fill time and get young viewers attention! And it seems to have worked. Mostly.

I knew Rubio didn’t listen to Tupac. Nobody that listens to Pac can stand Wiz Khalifa.
