Chet Haze, Tom Hanks’ Rapping Son, Goes In On “Jealous Nerds” In Twitter Rant


Life in the limelight is not easy, especially if you’re the rapping son of Forrest Gump.

Chet Haze, also known as Chester M. Hanks, is an MC and the son of actor Tom Hanks. The 20-something Northwestern graduate has had moderate success in the music game, opening for acts like LMFAO and releasing a number of videos on YouTube that have over 200,000 views each. But, because of his background, Chet has been getting a lot of shit for his rapping endeavors, including from radio personality Howard Stern. It seems he’s had enough of the negative feedback, as today he went on a big Twitter rant, addressing the haters and the “nerds” about his background, his father and how he’s just being himself.
