Hollywood/Hip-Hop Nepotism Must Stop!!!

Since everyone gives me a hard time about criticizing the rappin' offspring of assorted black entertainers, here's one for the sake of color balance. I'm just post-racial like that.

Chet Haze prolly isn't someone you've heard of, but you definitely know his dad. In case you don't, here's a hint: "Run Forrest, Run!!!"

I'll be honest, this isn't all that turrible. Yeah, remaking Wiz Khalifa's "Black And Yellow" for the 18 millionth time by subbing in your colors of choice is the pinnacle of creative laziness, but Tom Hanks' kid isn't turrible on the mic. I'm too lazy to Google this, but I'm not sure if this is his attempt to parlay his family connection into a record deal, or just another rich suburban white kid having fun. Either way, I'm assuming he's reppin' Northwestern because he actually goes there (how random would this otherwise be?) so the standard "he needs to quit trying to rap and just go to college" retort doesn't apply. He is in college, and a pretty good one at that.

Alright, Lauren, fire away. I know it's coming.

Question: Should Tom Hanks' kid just stick to his studies, or could he have an Eminem-sans-the-youth-angst career on his hands?
