Yeah, that Hanks.

Chet Hanks, son of Oscar-winning actor Tom, is the latest celebrity offspring to try his hand at becoming a rapper. Hanks, rapping under the name Chet Haze, wisely sticks to the subjects he knows best. Not quite his cameo appearance in the recent Indiana Jones movie or the dastardly butler forgetting to fold his socks, but as a student at the somewhat prestigious Northwestern University in Chicago he’s clearly keen to show off his school spirit.

Haze’s debut release, ’White and Purple (Northwestern Remix),’ is a reworking of Wiz Khalifa’s 2010 hit ‘Black and Yellow‘ – white and purple being the school’s colours. It’s a more or less straight re-working of the original, except with lyrics tailored to reflect the life of a rich kid living away from home for the first time. Think a clubbier Asher Roth without the accidental racism and you’re more or less there.

Us? We just can’t wait for the remix of ‘This Halloween is Crazy.’

Things like this make me think the world just wants to me keep disliking hip-hop.

Well at least Nick Cage's son is in a relatively interesting sympho black metal band, even though he dudes his dad for 13 million.

Oh god not another white rapper conforming to the swag hip hop shit

Tom Hanks made the sequel to Malibu's Most Wanted?

I don't understand why so many white rappers try to act like they are black rappers. I mean, why ignore the fact that what made the Beastie Boys so successful was their uncanny ability to just be themselves?

Maniac!
