hey.

 

so i guess Tom Hanks's son Chet is a rapper -- something i had heard a few years back, but never really looked into it.  but now he's made the news with his stance on the usage of the word "nigga" in his music, being an aristocratic white male with copious amounts of old money some (most) would argue he never had to struggle for to earn...

thoughts?  i've always been curious about this aspect of hip-hop, and the idea that certain people seemingly get a "pass" whereas others do not.

 

 

 

"If I say the word nigga I say it amongst people I love and who love me. If I say "fuck yall hatin ass niggaz" it's because that's really how I felt at the time. And I don't accept society getting to decide what ANYBODY can or can't say. That's something we call FREE SPEECH. Now I understand the older generation who grew up in the Jim Crowe era might have strong feelings against this. And that's understandable... But what I'm saying is this is 2015... And even tho we are still far from where we need to be and black people are still being literally KILLED by a RACIST and fucked up system... We have also reached a point where the word can no longer have a negative connotation if we so choose. And who is to say only black people can use it? The way I see it, it's a word that unifies the culture of HIP-HOP across ALL RACES, which is actually kind of a beautiful thing. It's a word that can be used out of camaraderie and love, not just exclusively for black people. What's the point in putting all these built up "rules" about it. It's time to let go. You can hate me or love me for it, but can't nobody tell me what I can or can't say. It's got nothing to do with trying to be a thug. It's about the culture of the music. And that's all I have to say about that (no pun intended) lol. It's all love. Some people will get it, some people won't. Either way, Ima keep living my life however the fuck I want. ALL LOVE."

I remember vice had an article about Chet Hanks and Daniel Day Lewis' son having a song called Green Auras that is now completely scrubbed from the internet.

 

 

Fucking entitled white people, entitled-ly deleting their hip-hop records from the internet

 

 

 

No one gets a pass. There is no pass. lol Chet Instagrammed a picture of the Qu'ran, those are the people we're dealing with. Things like this crush my soul. Then I have to listen to Donny Hathaway to renew it.

little bit of context for everyone who hasn't heard what he sounds like.

 

 

"some things are permanent -- now that's a karma tattoo"

Guy on another hip hop forum I spend too much time on

 

"Chet went to northwestern... Chet had a small role in the 4th Indiana jones film... I've done cocaine with Chet when I lived in Chicago. Chet likes cocaine."
 

I mean really, who doesn't love a white guy who's never been told "No" so he starts rapping.

 

it's the absolute tits

Lol what a pussy.

He is no aristocrat-just a Bulgarian gypsy from his mothers pussy.

Northwestern radio hip hop hour is fire. Students who dont give it a listen are sketch.

i bet Basementalism and Beats From the East blow that shit out of the water here on Radio 1190 at CU...our old music director was like winning awards and shit for "best taste", which i'm not exactly sure of what that means but i guess it's still a bragging right our station earned haha.

 

 

but anyway, i'm on a mission to find that "Green Auras" track now...it has to be out there somewhere.

Could be. But 25 years gives you a long time to collect rare test pressings from many important artists-lootpack not excluded. All vinyl. 25 years of underground. The struggle was real. Scratch and blend. Not synch and watch the bpm counter and little computer pixels.

Love is love.

lol we are like the last station in the country that still regularly plays vinyl though...our station, from what i understand, is a lot different from most other college radio around the nation.
