Video: Comethazine -“ACT”
The XXL Freshman Shares a New Video From Bawskee 3.5, Which Peaked at #53 on the Billboard 200
“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
Comethazine keeping listeners on their toes with his visceral imagery and energetic rhymes. Toning down the energy, but maintaining a steely intensity, Comethazine shares “ACT,” his new video. Taking a break from terrorizing his enemies, the video finds Comethazine laying low in his mansion plotting his next move as he strives for rap supremacy: “B*tch, I don’t even care, I’d be a liar if I told you I did.” Premiered by XXL, “ACT” is the latest video from Bawskee 3.5, following the sinister clip for “FIND HIM!“
Crackling with a fiery electricity, Bawskee 3.5 is the most complete artistic statement yet by the Alamo Records signee, mixing adrenaline-boosting bangers like the recent single “Just Saying” with more experimental efforts like the hypnotic “Stand,“ a banger based on looped samples of Comethazine’s voice. Peaking in the Top 5 of Apple Music’s all-genre streaming charts in its debut weekend, debuting at #53 on the Billboard 200, and generating over 25 million streams across platforms, Bawskee 3.5 is available everywhere via Alamo/Interscope.
Recently named by XXL Magazine to the 2019 Freshman Class, Comethazine is a new kind of rap star. Earning over 110 million combined streams on Spotify alone, Comethazine recently earned a a GOLDcertification from the RIAA for “Walk,” which inspired a remix featuring A$AP Rocky. Earlier this week, Comethazine shared his XXL Freshman Freestyle, racking up over 1.2 million views and reaching the top ten of YouTube’s Trending Chart, and hopped on a cypher with fellow XXL Freshmen Tierra Whack and Roddy Ricch. With hundreds of millions of streams across all platforms, 3.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and an Instagram following that tops 1.3 million, Comethazine is just getting started.

Bawskee 3.5 tracklist:
- HENCH MAFIA
- FIND HIM!
- SOLVED THE PROBLEM
- NO EVIDENCE
- JUST SAYING
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.
