The son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Chet, has revealed that he wants a career in music – and that his parents are wholly supportive.

The 20-year-old college student has recently posted his first hip-hop remixes online. Speaking to the Washington Post, he said that his family stand by his rap ambitions and that his Dad Tom Hanks is all for keeping ‘an open mind’ over hip-hop music.

’They do know about [my career goals] and they share my excitement. And they're also very supportive, which is something I appreciate,’ explained the humble Chet.

It goes without saying that the support of my parents is something that I will never take for granted and I am very thankful for.’

The question of Big star Tom Hanks’ music taste is a little broached one. Asked if his parents were fans of hip-hop, Chet replied: ‘You know, [my dad] keeps an open mind.

‘I've spent a lot of time trying to show him a lot of the music that inspires me. And he does keep an open mind.’

Chet is currently a theatre student at Northwestern University in Illinois. He’s recently been receiving plaudits fir his remix of rapper Wiz Khalifa's underground hit 'Black And Yellow'.
