Comethazine quite literally started from the bottom, and now he’s here. The East St. Louis, Illinois rapper, born Frank Childress in 1998, turned that famous Drake line into an actuality when he traded in his job working on the undercarriage of cars as a mechanic to become a fulltime rapper. Early success on SoundCloud allowed Childress to pursue rap professionally, and he quickly turned this break into a wave of success with his first hit, 2018’s “Bands”. On the track, he displays an agile flow that bounces around a minimal beat, quickly showcasing his signature blend of humour and sardonic nihilism that reflects the notorious neighborhood he came from. He raps, “I got a shooter and he gon' take off his knees/All it takes is two shots, watch his body drop,” before he adds, almost as an afterthought, “Skechers on my feet but I'm a rich guy.” Comethazine may be of the SoundCloud generation, but his vocals are clearer and atop the mix, while many of his peers prefer to bury their words in distortion and heavy bass. He matches the broken detachment of an artist like 21 Savage with the cleverness of Danny Brown. On “Find Him!” from 2019’s BAWSKEE 3.5, he raps, “Hook that boy up like some bait, I'm a fisher/Cook him up like fish fillet, then eat dinner.” But utilising a beat that is so infectious and playful, Comethazine sounds like he’s narrating a fairy tale instead of a horror story.
Frank Childress (born July 6, 1998), known professionally as Comethazine , is an American rapper, songwriter, and film director. He is best known for his platinum-selling single "Walk", which peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart and "Bands" with Rich the Kid. Both songs were included on his well-received debut mixtape, Bawskee (2018).
Bawskee was followed up by three sequels; Bawskee 2, Bawskee 3.5 and Bawskee 4. His debut album, Pandemic, was released in early 2020 to mainly positive critical reception. In 2019, he was an XXL Freshman and performed his cypher alongside rappers Roddy Ricch and Tierra Whack. His self-titled second album Comethazine is expected in 2021.
Comethazine began posting his music on audio distribution platform SoundCloud and video distribution platform Spotify as a teenager, allowing him to quit his job as a mechanic to focus on music full-time.
In early 2018, a feature on SoundCloud that allows their original sound file to be switched was abused for an unofficial upload of YBN Nahmir's song "Bounce Out with That", that was replaced with his song "Bands", causing it to acquire the chart data of "Bounce Out with That". It is unclear who perpetrated this, though the account associated with the switch has since been removed. This incident helped increase the popularity of "Bands". In 2019, he was selected to be a part of the 2019 XXL Freshmen Class. Comethazine announced the creation of his own record label, Hench Mafia Records, in June 2019.
On March 27, 2020, Comethazine's debut studio album, Pandemic, was released. His next project, Bawskee 4 followed on October 23, 2020, preceded by the music videos for "We Gone Win", "Air Max", and "Derek Jeter". Comethazine shot another music video for the song, "556", and released the entire album alongside it.
In late December 2020, Comethazine announced that his upcoming album would be titled Comethazine. He directed and shot a television show called Doogie. It will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on a date that is TBD.
Musical style and influences
Comethazine's music has been compared as a mixture of Playboi Carti, Smokepurpp and Tay-K, and has been referred to as anti-melody, a derivative form of trap that uses the bass as a source of melody instead of traditional instrumentation. He has cited rappers such as Big Mike, Pimp C, Chingy, Jadakiss, Special Ed, Chief Keef, Playboi Carti, Eminem, Waka Flocka Flame, 50 Cent, and Jim Jones as musical influences.

Comethazine Releases New Music Video For “FIND HIM!”
RJ Frometa July 31, 2019News
With a devious grin and a talent for violent witticisms, Comethazine was born to be the bad guy. Today, Comethazine shares “FIND HIM!,” a stylish and pure-evil new music video. A sinister slapper driven by reverbed electric keys, “FIND HIM!” proves that nobody who crosses Comethazine could ever escape his grasp: “Look for his ass ’til we find him/Spotted him runnin’, just shot from behind him.” Set in a dingy and dark version of New York City, the “FIND HIM!” video shows the rapper embracing his inner supervillain, wreaking havoc around the city with his hooded henchmen. A highlight from Bawskee 3.5, Comethazine’s recently released debut album, “FIND HIM!” can be found on Spotify’s Rap Caviar playlist.
Crackling with a fiery electricity, Bawskee 3.5 is the Alamo Records signee’s most complete artistic statement yet, mixing adrenaline-boosting bangers like the recent single “Just Saying” with more experimental efforts like the hypnotic “Stand,” which crafts a banger with looped samples of Comethazine’s voice. With irresistible hooks molded from clipped cadences and snide turns-of-phrase, Comethazine’s music hits like a jolt of adrenaline, providing an instant dose of turn-up for any situation. Peaking in the Top 5 of Apple Music’s all-genre streaming charts this weekend, Bawskee 3.5 is available everywhere via Alamo/Interscope.

DEAR SUNDAY SHARE NEW SINGLE TELEPORT + DEBUT EP DRAW 4 OUT NOVEMBER 12 + ANNOUNCE WA TOUR
Exciting newcomers Dear Sunday have today announced their sparkling, psychedelic new single Teleport, a sweet, glistening, confessional track that …
It’s been some months since Comethazine liberated his debut studio album, the appropriately titled Pandemic, which saw 12 tracks from the East St. Louis rapper. Now, he’s putting the finishing touches on the fourth installment of his highly popular Bawksee series. Following videos for “We Gon Win” and “Air Max,” fans can check out a new visual from the forthcoming mixtape titled “Derek Jeter,” which sees production from ChildBoy and features the ultra-violent, sexually charged bars that Comethezine is known for:
“Single life for me because I chose to be a cheater, D-Dolo when I slide, I pull up, just me and my heater, my b***h runnin’ from my pitbull, like he gon’ eat her, your b***h pussy dry, before you f*** you gotta eat her/
W-Why you doin’ that? S***, I’m not gon’ do neither, I just get the neck satisfaction, guarantee her, lips on my d*** right now, so you can not see her, smoke-a-smoke a baseball bat, ball like Derek Jeter/
Ticket on the two seater, ‘cause I didn’t pay the meter.../”
The visual comes courtesy of JMP and adds some humor to the track with shots of Comethazine enjoying some female company, a smoke-infused bathroom break, a spelling bee, and more.
Signed to Alamo Records, Comethazine first released the well-received Bawskee in 2018, later liberating Bawskee 2 and Bawskee 3.5 the following year. Bawskee also contained his most successful singles, “Bands” with Rich The Kid and the Platinum plaque-earning “Walk” with A$AP Rocky. Comethazine also boasts the distinction of joining XXL’s 2019 Freshman class alongside Cordae, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, Gunna, Blueface, and more.
Press play on “Derek Jeter” below, along with — if you missed it — Pandemic and another visual for the aforementioned cut “We Gon Win.” Hopefully, Bawskee 4 will make landfall sooner than later.

Video: Comethazine – “Air Max”
The Alamo Records Signee Shares A Ferocious New Video Single, His First Since Releasing the Pandemic Project in March
“The rapper has become the viral face of the trap scene.” – OFFICE Mag
“The video for Comethazine’s ‘Walk’ currently sits at 33 million views, solidfying the nightmarishly hyper-violent track as bonafide hit of SoundCloud rap.” – The FADER
“Comethazine has established himself was one of hip-hop’s rising stars—amassing a solid fan base and co-signs from the likes of Rich the Kid and ASAP Rocky.” – COMPLEX
“St. Louis teen Comethazine gave rap a shot, and got millions of streams in return. As his December 2017 video ‘Piped Up’ inches closer to 3 million views, it seems the young rapper made the right choice to leave the regular nine-to-five life behind” – XXL
“Comethazine is one of the most buzzing artists in the hip-hop world” – HotNewHipHop
Unleashing unhinged threats in his snarling voice, Comethazine specializes in pure evil trap bangers. Returning with his first music in six months, Comethazine shares “Air Max,” his new video single. Rhyming with a teeth-clenching intensity atop booming drums and mournful violin, Co warns the listener that he’s a remorseless hitter, ready for war at any time: “How the f*ck do you expect me to act?/Sold crack in the old Air Max.” In the video, Comethazine rocks a Givenchy sweater as he plots world domination from his warehouse lair, mean-mugging the camera as he smokes up with his Hench Mafia associates and shows off his rocket launcher.
“Air Max” is the Comethazine’s first new song since the release of Pandemic, Comethazine’s apocalyptic project, released in March. Opening with the mission statement “No Front” (2.2 million YouTube views), the project establishes Comethazine as rap’s most charming misanthrope, reveling in his “me vs. the world” attitude. Racing through 13-tracks in slightly more than 20 minutes, including breakout hit “LEAD THE RACE (UNDEFEATED)” (9 million Spotify streams), Pandemic is a glimpse into Comethazine’s proudly hedonistic lifestyle, as he stacks obscene witticisms and lists everything he loves (Jordans, guns, foreign cars, lean, Faygo, crab meat) and hates (liquor, fronting, manners, fakes, nearly everything else). With more than 35 million streams on Spotify alone, Pandemic is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
Named an XXL Freshman in 2019, the 22-year-old Comethazine has paved his own path in the music industry, releasing the successful Bawskee series of mixtapes in 2018 and 2019, including last year’s Billboard 200-charting Bawskee 3.5. His 2018 breakout single “Bands” earned a Gold certification from the RIAA, and his signature song “Walk” went platinum and earned a remix from A$AP Rocky. Currently preparing the follow-up to Pandemic, Comethazine looks to launch himself into a rare echelon: self-made, self-sustaining superstar.

Born Frank Childress in 1998, St. Louis-native Comethazine was a lean-loving high-school dropout. Influenced by Nipsey Hussle, Odd Future, Lil B, and Chief Keef, he started rapping in 2015. He soon discovered that his initial output was not as well received as party-oriented cloud rap, so he switched angles and scored a pair of local underground hits with “Run It” and “Hella Choppers.” The Aloe Vera EP landed in 2016, which resulted in a late-2017 deal with Alamo Records. A slew of short singles followed, including “Deathwish,” “Piped Up,” “Oowee,” and “Hero.” “Bands” became a viral hit, landing on his first full-length, Bawskee, which debuted on the Billboard 200 upon its release in 2018.

Comethazine Drops New Single & Video "Malcolm In The Middle"
Malcolm In The Middle
Comethazine returns with his new single and music video "Malcolm in the Middle".
Comethazine is one of the most authentic artists in hip-hop. He stays in his lane, consistently delivers new music for his fans, and comes through with the intensity and eclectic energy that his base has grown to know and love him for. Being named to the XXL Freshman list in 2019, Comethazine has experienced a lick of mainstream success, but it feels like his music is much better suited for a more underground audience, catering to a niche market with his eye-popping rhymes and head-scratching punchlines.
Returning with his new music video for "Malcolm in the Middle", Co drops less than a minute-and-thirty-seconds worth of content for his fans to enjoy, reuniting with a lookalike family from the famous sitcom and sticking with them during a shenanigans-filled evening. He eats supper with the family, capturing them bobbing their heads to the new song before the twists and turns begin.
Watch the new music video from Comethazine below.
In the middle of two b*tches, feel like Malcolm
Big sh*t talker, yeah that's you but this the outcome
Oh hoe, you ain't havin' fun, b*tch how come?
You said that you wanna be a star, you around one
