Campaigning will have to wait for hip hop fan Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — he’s got to see “Straight Outta Compton.”

The GOP presidential candidate says the upcoming film about the rap group N.W.A. looks “amazing,” tweeting on Tuesday:


A promotional site for the movie says it “tells the true story of how these cultural rebels — armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent — stood up to authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A.”

Rubio, 44, has said that the group’s 1988 hit “Straight Outta Compton” is one of his three favorite hip hop songs of all time. A self-described “hip hop fan,” Rubio has praised a variety of artists, including Eminem and Tupac Shakur.

Rubio also crowdsourced for movie theater recommendations to catch the new flick:
