Toss Up! Bigger Embarrassment To Their Families- Chet Haze or TJ Fredette?

For those of you living under a rock who don't listen to shitty, unsigned, white rappers, here's a little background on our two contestants. Chet Haze is the 20 year old frat boy son Oscar winning actor Tom Hanks. Haze attends Northwestern University and according to his bio he "spends his nights murdering tracks and really living what he's spitting." Chet received some viral attention for his rip of off the popular Wiz Khalifa song "Black and Yellow", with his own rendition, "Purple and White"(NU Remix).

TJ Fredette is the 29 year old older brother of Sacramento Kings guard, and Mormon folk hero, Jimmer Fredette. Apparently TJ has been preforming some of his songs at half time of Jimmer's games for some time now, but he didn't get noticed nationally until the NBA Draft in June when he was interviewed on ESPN about a contract he wrote up for Jimmer before he entered college, motivating him to make it to the pros one day. However, this summer TJ has upped the ante by taking his gimmicks to the legendary Dyckman Park to rap before one of the highly covered summer league games their. Needless to say it was a total fail, and the crowd (which was made up of 99.9% African Americans) was disinterested and booed him off the court.

In closing I think that TJ is the bigger embarrassment for three main reasons. First- Tom Hanks has infinitely more money than Jimmer, thus allowing Chet to quite literally make as big an ass out of himself as possible, fully knowing that no matter what he'll be sitting on millions when it's all said and done. TJ has a lot more to lose by making a mockery of himself. Second- Jimmer plays in a sport made up primarily of blacks, and his brother is single handedly murdering one of that races most prized pastimes. Not a good look for the new white-boy in the league. And third- TJ kind of looks like the brother from "Lights Out". Not really sure why that counts as a strike against him, but that brother was a total douchebag to Lights (inadvertent stabbing in episode 7 anyone?) so TJ's getting penalized for it.

If those reasons weren't good enough for you, check out their shitty music below and pick which one you think brings more shame to their families?
