Via The Telegraph:

Entertainment website TMZ asked the Florida Senator, a known hip hop fan, about rapper Lil Wayne’s claim that he is “the new Tupac”.
The politician replied: “There is only one Tupac.”
“Tupac lived in a different time. These guys have some message in what they’re saying, but I think they’re largely entertainers,” he added.
“I think Tupac was more someone who was trying to inform us about what was going on, and he did it through entertainment.”
