Tom Hanks Gets a Hilarious Breakdown of the Drake and Kendrick Lamar Rap Beef from Son Chet Hanks

Chet's humorous and detailed recap left his dad informed and entertained, with references to West Coast culture and their own family experiences.

The Drake and Kendrick Lamar rap beef knows no bounds.

In fact, the renowned and respected actor Tom Hanks even wanted it broken down for him. And who better than his broken Patois-speaking son, Chet Hanks? The Oscar winner asked his son for a blow-by-blow of the rap beef heard ‘round the world and asked, “Big Main, can you explain the Drake/Kendrick Lamar feud to me?” and Chet delivered.

Chet’s explanation was hilarious and concise, wrapping the week-long battle into a neat text paragraph. Chet even clued his dad in while including his dad in the explanation. “...but it didn’t even matter cuz then Kendrick just dropped another West Coast banger where he really went in on labeling Drake a pedophile that was pretty much the sonic equivalent of when you took me to your high school in Oakland and we walked in on the basketball game and everybody started going nuts.”

Chet went on, “Like if you heard it you would just automatically know how to Crip walk with a stank face while clutching an Oscar in each hand with Marshawn Lynch, then dap him up and tell him ‘Town Bidness’ which solidified the win not only for Kendrick but the entire West Coast.”

To which Tom replied, “Holy cow! These are fighting words. People taking sides?? Who’s winning??”

Chet hilariously replied, “Did you not read what I said?” with crying, laughing emojis. Tom, Big Hanks, not the Little One, is still lost. Maybe Chet should just play him Kendrick’s “Not Like Us.”
