Chet Hanks, son of actor Tom Hanks, shared screenshots on his Instagram Story on Monday showing texts from his father asking about the recent feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar. The two rappers have been engaged in a weekslong battle, releasing various diss tracks aimed at each other. This feud began with Lamar’s feature on Future and Metro Boomin’s song “Like That.”

In response to his dad’s inquiry, Chet sent a detailed text summarizing the feud, listing the released songs, and describing the accusations made by each rapper. Tom Hanks, addressing his son as “Big Main,” responded with: “Holy cow! These are fighting words. People are taking sides?? Who’s winning??”

Chet humorously replied, questioning if his dad had actually read his explanation, and declared Lamar the winner of the battle.
