Legendary actor Tom Hanks recently had a long conversation with his 33-year-old son Chet Hanks for an explanation about Drake and Kendrick Lamar‘s rap beef because Tom Hanks felt out of the loop about the whole thing.

Drake and Kendrick Lamar‘s rap feud was at the centre of the family chat online when Tom and his son had a father and son chat which was published on Instagram on Monday.

Chet shared images of the text exchange on his Instagram Story, revealing that his father, whose contact he had saved on his phone as “Pops”, messaged him first, asking, “Big Main, can you explain the Drake/Kendrick Lamar feud to me?”

Naturally, Chet began a long summary of the rappers’ beef, pointing out that since Drake’s “Push Ups” in April and May, each of them has been releasing a series of diss songs targeted at the other.

Drake’s Taylor Made Freestyle, Family Matters and The Heart Pt. 6, as well as Lamar’s Euphoria, 6:16 in L.A. and Meet the Grahams are part of the diss songs both artistes released.

The Award-winning actor was informed by Chet Hanks that Kendrick Lamar’s Billboard Hot 100-topping farewell song, Not Like Us, 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.”

“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,” Chet stated.

“Holy cow!. These are fighting words. People taking sides?? Who’s winning??,” the Forrest Gump star wrote.

But Chet mocked his dad by replying “Did you not just read what I said”, adding three cry-laughing emojis.
