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.

To the beat of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," it's "White and Purple (Northwestern Remix)." (These are the Northwestern University colors, you see). "White kicks/ Purple kush/ This is college, hittin blunts after hittin books," Chet explains. "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."

One must admit that Chet Haze has successfully captured the issues faced by the typical Northwestern University student. 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." We couldn't say one way or the other!

Chet also had a role in Bratz: The Movie. Big shout out to Northwestern U.


Oh snap—a tipster points out that Chet's single is just a big ripoff of "White & Purple (NU Anthem 2010)" by Mo Greene, which came out months ago and is much, much better.
