Tom Hanks’s Son Chet Wants To Be A Rapper, Obviously

To be honest, I didn’t even know Tom Hanks had a son besides Colin, but somehow learning that he exists in the same breath as learning that he wants to be a rapper (named Chet Haze, dope) comes as NO SURPRISE WHATSOEVER. From Gawker:

Chet Hanks is the son of actor Tom Hanks. He attends Northwestern University. Chet Haze is “an up and coming MC…Born and raised on the West Side of the Westside’s main city LA.” Yes, he has a new Northwestern-themed single.

According to Chet’s bio: “Living the college life, Chet’s days consist of chilling with his boys, attending class, and taking care of business. However, his nights consist of absolutely murdering tracks, and living what he is really spitting.” As Chet argues on the Twitter, “just realized my fb and first single was released on 1/11/11. I think its cuz im gunna win. you tell me.”

Uh, NEWSFLASH, you already won, kid. You will never have to work a day in your life, and your experience up until now has been one of such abundant affirmation and indulgence that you actually think “being a rapper” is a real thing you might actually do. Ha! Good luck! Streets is talking! These guys are all pulling for you. Oh, P.S. no offense, but your rap (after the jump) is terrible!

We already have an Asher Roth, Chet Hanks. His name is Asher Roth, and he sucks.
