America, please welcome to the college rapper arena Chet Haze. Usually college rappers are all "different" from each other because they're lyrics are better/funnier/deeper than their competition, or they don't want to "fit into the genre of college rapper because that's not who they are." Well, we've now seen it all. Chet Haze is not your average college rapper. He's the son of beloved Hollywood actor Tom Hanks. Yesterday Chet Haze dropped a mildly amusing take on Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," changing it to "White and Purple," which are Northwestern's colors. A tipster points out to Gawker that the track is actually a rip-off of a similar song by someone named Mo Green. Chet Haze's bio says that he "spends his night murdering tracks and really living what he's spitting." I don't even know what to say. Check out the video after the jump.
Born and raised on the West Side of the Westside's main city LA, Chet grew up an enthusiast of the rap game. He is an up and coming MC with a flow that does California proud, partnered with lyrical intelligence that complements his attendance at Northwestern University. 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.
The folks at Gawker already transcribed a rather bro-tastic part of white and purple: "White kicks/ Purple kush/ This is college, hittin blunts after hittin books/ I got a call from the brothers in the frat house/ I'm with my girl, tryin to get up under that blouse/ She a freshman/ She a freak though/ In the bed, but a lady in the street, yo."
