A few months ago rapper Chet Haze — the youngest son of actor Tom Hanks — kicked the proverbial beehive when he tried to defend his use of the N-word. Chet Haze just dropped some raw videos on Instagram about what was going on in his life at the time of that insane, nonsensical rant. If you thought he sounded fucked up on drugs, you were right! He was! Via Fishwrapper:
Hanks says, “I just really had to take a look at myself and my life and the way s–t was going and all the crazy stupid s–t I was doing and just finally admit to myself that it wasn’t working.”
He added: “A couple months ago I was selling coke, doing coke until I couldn’t even snort it up my nose anymore because it was so clogged. I even smoked crack. It’s been a long journey discovering who I am because all the pressures that I’ve dealt with in my life — you know, being the son of my dad and everything.”
So we weren’t just imagining him being high out of his gourd, huh?
Haze a.k.a. Hanks is in rehab sorting through these issues, according to his Instagram rant. I know the Internet has a snarky obsession with him, but I’m sincerely pulling for him — I interviewed him back in 2011 when he first went viral and he hung a little bit in the BroBible office one Friday night. He was super mellow and chill at the time. He’s a good dude.
Just rooting for him to kick his demons.
