Audio: Comethazine -“50 Bars”
The 2019 XXL Freshman Flashes Impressive Lyricism in the No Hook New Single, His First Since the Release of Debut Album Bawskee 3.5
“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
Rhyming with a snarly intensity, Comethazine is an endless source of pure evil bars. Stepping up his game for his latest lyrical exercise, Comethazine shares “50 Bars,” a new single. Slowly picking up steam atop a minimal, bass-heavy beat, the Alamo Records signee isn’t bragging–he’s just speaking facts: “Yeah I bought me a jet, but got no one to fly that shit/Think that he fly but he know I’m the flyest in/Binoculars, I ain’t seen nobody fly as this.” Released on his SoundCloud, “50 Bars” follows recent videos for “ACT” and “FIND HIM!“
“50 Bars” is Comethazine’s first new song since the release of Bawskee 3.5, the rapper’s recently released debut album. Featuring singles such as the adrenaline-boosted “Just Saying” with more experimental efforts like the hypnotic “Stand,“ a banger based on looped samples of Comethazine’s voice, Bawskee 3.5 reached #53 on the Billboard 200 and peaked in the Top 5 of Apple Music’s All-Genre Album Charts.
Recently named by XXL Magazine to the 2019 Freshman Class, Comethazine is a new kind of rap star. Earning over 115 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. In July, Comethazine shared his XXL Freshman Freestyle, racking up over 1.3 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, 4.2 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.
