Continuing His Tradition of Eschewing Features and Big Name Producers, Bawskee 4 Finds the Alamo Records Signee Expanding His Sonic Palette
“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
Snarling his way through bite-sized bangers with a willful disregard for anything that might step in his path, Comethazine is one of rap’s most vicious lone wolves. Today, Comethazine reveals the tracklist for Bawskee 4, his next project. Created with hep from longtime producers like DIV, Childboy, and Toom, Bawskee 4 diversifies Comethazine’s sonic palette, with some tracks bringing in organic instrumentation and samples to contrast with the high-octane trap bangers on which he made his name. Like all the previous entries in his successful Bawskee series of tapes, Bawskee 4 has no features, leaving plenty of room for Comethazine to list the myriad reasons why he’s not to be trifled with. Spanning 15 tracks, with evocative titles including “Murder Passion” and “Skin That I’m In,” Bawskee 4 arrives on October 23rd via Alamo Records.
“We taking it back to old energy with this one,” says Comethazine. ” Every beat has to been tailored by people who know my sound. There are some songs on here that came from the sessions for Bawskee 1. I’ve had time to look at everyone else and to know how to be better, and I think everyone will see that on this project.”
The upcoming album is home to previously released singles like the fiercely soulful “We Gone Win” (1.3 million YouTube views) and the haunting, noirish “Air Max” (2.1 million views). Last week, Comethazine shared “Derek Jeter,” a lightning-quick banger that maintained the same rhymescheme throughout its 96-second runtime. Bawskee 4 continues the Bawskee series of mixtapes, which included massive hits like the Gold-selling “Bands” and the Platinum-selling “Walk.” Last year, the St. Louis native shared the Billboard 200-charting Bawskee 3.5. Bawskee 4 is the direct follow-up to Pandemic, Comethazine’s apocalyptic March 2020 project. Opening with the mission statement “No Front” (2.2 million YouTube views) and hosting the breakout hit “LEAD THE RACE (UNDEFEATED)” (11 million Spotify streams), the project establishes Comethazine as rap’s most charming misanthrope, reveling in his “me vs. the world” attitude.
Now ready to branch out and show the world different sides of himself, Comethazine prepares for his next step towards becoming a self-made, self-sustaining star.

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.
