One would assume that dropping a Wiz Khalifa reference on the Senate floor would mean the #filibuster end is nigh. One would be wrong.—

Awww naw, he didn’t? Yes, he did! Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) dropped some rap and pop culture references during tonight’s #StandWithRand filibuster and set Twitter abuzz. Aiiiight.
"I want to quote a modern poet known as Wiz Khalifa, work hard play hard" – Senator Marco Rubio hahaha—

References Wiz Khalifa. Quotes The Godfather and Jay-Z. Rubio trolls like a BOSS.—

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.—

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.—

Whiz Khalifa. Jay-Z. The Godfather. Rubio's bringing it big-time tonight. Breitbart: To chance the politics, change the culture.—
