Comethazine New Album Set to Drop March 27th
“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.
Specializing in bite-sized, adrenaline-fueled bangers, nobody in rap brings an energy quite like Comethazine’s. Channeling his darkest impulses into a hard-hitting new project, Comethazine plans Pandemic, his next album. Perfecting the style, he pioneered during his successful Bawksee series of projects, including last year’s Bawskee 3.5, Pandemic (a title he picked after enjoying a documentary on Netflix in January) finds Comethazine sharpening his wordplay, adding to his arsenal of flows, and growing his bankroll. Dripping with the pure evil attitude that earned Comethazine his loyal legion of fans, Pandemic arrives on March 27thvia Alamo Records.
Along with the announcement of the project, Comethazine shares “No Front,” the first video single. An apocalyptic banger complete with siren-like horn blasts, heralding untold calamity, “No Front” is an unapologetic flex-fest. Over a scant 103 seconds, Comethazine rattles off an escalating series of outlandish bars, piling up to create a picture of a person who truly gives zero f*cks: “A life without a drum is no fun/100 plus shots, one gun/100 shots of lean, not rum/I don’t drink liquor, just lean/Never popped a pill, not one bean.” In the video, the St. Louis native schemes stacks bands in his lair, roosts in his bright red ‘Rari and enjoys a fine meal (“Filet mignon, crab, well done”) at a fancy restaurant with a model or two.
Named an XXL Freshman in 2019, the 22-year-old Comethazine has paved his own path in the music industry, building a huge fanbase without assistance from co-signs, features, or big-name producers. 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.

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.
