Video: Comethazine – “No Evidence”
The 2019 XXL Freshman Breathes Chaotic Life Into A Raucous Highlight from His Billboard 200-Charting Bawskee 3.5 Album
“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 makes high-octane trap music, dropping concentrated doses of turn-up into each bite-sized banger. Bringing to light a highlight from his recent Bawskee 3.5 album, Comethazine shares “No Evidence,” his latest video. An entrancing hybrid of New Orleans bounce percussion, trap 808s, and Middle Eastern instrumentation, “No Evidence” is equally suited to head-banging or breakdancing. Sliding into the beat’s negative space with a subdued menace, Comethazine tosses off threatening witticisms in a sing-song flow: “Paid a hunnid for the Forces, now there’s blood on the bottom/Finna hit the Foot Locker, b*tch I’m not finna wash ’em.” In the video, Comethazine leads a crew of semi-feral followers into the woods, where they cause chaos for their own entertainment. “No Evidence” follows the sinister video for “FIND HIM!” the laid-back clip for “ACT,” and the breathless new single “50 Bars,” which dropped earlier this month.
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,” 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 in its debut weekend, debuting at #53 on the Billboard 200 and generating over 25 million streams across platforms in its first week of release, 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 116 million combined streams on Spotify alone, Comethazine recently earned a a GOLD certification 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, more than 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and an Instagram following that tops 1.4 million, Comethazine is just getting started.

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.
