WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- It's no secret that Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is a hip-hop fan--he's known to blast Snoop Dogg during long car rides on the campaign trail--but now he's revealed his rap favorites.

In an interview with GQ Magazine, Rubio said his three top rap songs are "Straight Outta Compton" by N.W.A, "Killuminati" by Tupac and Eminem's "Lose Yourself."

"The only guy that speaks at any sort of depth is, in my mind, Eminem," Rubio told GQ. "He's a guy that does music that talks about the struggles of addiction and before that violence, with growing up in a broken family, not being a good enough father. So, you know that's what I enjoy about it. It's harder to listen to than ever before because I have a bunch of kids and you just can't put it on."

Here are Rubio's top three, all in one place:

"Straight Outta Compton" by N.W.A.:

"Killuminati" by Tupac Shakur:

"Lose Yourself" by Eminem:
