Chet Hanks announces “white boy summer”
Taking to Instagram on March 26th 2021, Chet said: “Hey guys, look I just wanted to tap in really quick, I just got this feeling man that this summer is about to be a white boy summer.
In a bid to expand on what exactly he meant by “white boy summer”, Chet added:

What is a “white boy summer”?
Chet attempts to explain what a “white boy summer” is, referencing Jon B and Jack Harlow as examples of what it’s all about. Both are white musicians: Jon B, in his heyday, was an R’n’B sensation; Jack Harlow is a rapper who recently had hits with What’s Poppin and Way Out.
Despite these examples, it still remains unclear what Chet Hanks meant by “white boy summer.” It could be that he derived the concept from Megan Thee Stallion’s song, and subsequent meme/trend, “Hot Girl Summer”.
Megan’s idea of a “Hot Girl Summer” is “...basically about women — and men — just being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up your friends, doing you, not giving a damn about what nobody got to say about it. You definitely have to be a person that can be the life of the party, and, y’know, just a bad b**ch.”
