When your dad is Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks, there’s no doubt you’ve got deep pockets and big footsteps to follow. For Chet Hanks aka Chet Haze, growing up with such a rich and famous father definitely has its perks -- like allowing you to personally finance your not-so-impressive hip-hop career.

Chet has yet to make it big in the music industry, but has managed to get the attention of the media... in a not-so-good way. The frat-boy rapper is an endless source of foolery for Gawker, who has described his work as, "some janky Justin Timberlake-grabs-the-mic-at-the-8th-grade-school-dance type s---." Despite it all, Papa Hanks seems to be proud of his son, and continues to encourage him to be all that he can be.
