Project: Comethazine – Pandemic
With a Title Inspired by a Recent Netflix Documentary, 13-Track Project is an Adrenaline-Fueled Immersion in the Alamo Records Signee’s Hedonistic World
“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
Building a massive fanbase without relying on co-signs, features, or big-name producers, Comethazine is more than ready for the new age of isolation. Returning to the scene with a new set of bangers, Comethazine shares Pandemic, his new project. Racing through 13-tracks in slightly more than 20 minutes, Pandemic is a glimpse iinto 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).
Opening with the apocalyptic mission statement “No Front” (over 630k views on YouTube since last week’s release), the project establishes Comethazine as rap’s most charming misanthrope, reveling in his “me vs. the world” attitude: “Before I step up out the door, I pray that God be wit me/But if he not, I take a different route, that ‘9 stay wit me,” snarls Comethazine on project highlight “Gallardo.” Given its title after Comethazine binge-watched Netflix’s Pandemic series while on tour, the new project 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. Ready for even more success in the wake of 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.
