Los Angeles: Hollywood star Tom Hanks' rapper son Chet Haze is hoping his sobriety battle will help others struggling to kick substance abuse problems.

In a series of videos posted on Instagram, the 25-year-old aspiring hip-hop star, real name Chester Hanks, reveals he is clean and sober after undergoing a rehab stint earlier this year, reported E! online.

Detailing the low he reached before agreeing to seek help, he said, "A couple of months ago, I was selling coke (cocaine), doing coke until I couldn't even snort it up my nose anymore because it was so clogged. If I can change, you can change. There is a solution."

"I've been trying to get myself together and I'm doing pretty good." And now the aspiring rapper is hoping his journey to good health and sobriety will help others.
