Comethazine Shares Bawskee 4, His Latest Banger-Filled Opus
The Alamo Records Signee Wields a Crossbow to Defend His Home in the “556” Video
Continuing His Tradition of Eschewing Features and Big Name Producers, Bawskee 4 is the Next Step on Comethazine’s Path Towards Self-Made Stardom
“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
Delivering pure-evil bars in a ferocious snarl, Comethazine‘s high-octane trap music takes no prisoners. Continuing his run as one of rap’s self-sustaining stars, Comethazine shares Bawskee 4, his latest project. Created with help from longtime producers like DIV, Childboy, and Toom, Bawskee 4 walks the line between introducing new sonic elements and pleasing longtime fans, adding dramatic strings, organic instrumentation, and sampled sounds to contrast with his trademark trap elements.
Proudly offering no feature verses throughout its 15 tracks, Bawskee 4 boasts some of Comethazine’s most memorable punchlines and most adventurous flows, including a nursery rhyme-esque sing-song on “Jumpman 4’s” and his consistent rhyme scheme on recent single “Derek Jeter” (1.4 million views). The album is home to previously released singles like the fiercely soulful “We Gone Win” (1.8 million YouTube views) and the haunting, noirish “Air Max” (2.5 million views). Bawskee 4 is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
Along with the project, Comethazine shares the Halloween-appropriate video for Bawskee 4 highlight “556.” Riding a syncopated trap beat and lo-fi keyboard arpeggio that would fit right in on a classic Gucci Mane mixtape, Comethazine lays out his governing philosophy in a halting flow: “Real killers don’t need face tattoos, I’m the first to prove/I got too much to do, I need another day/B*tch, I’m locked up in the stu, I got too much to say.” Inspired by horror films like The Strangers, the JMP-directed video for “556” continues the plot from Comethazine’s Bawskee 4 trailer, released yesterday, as the rapper defends his remote cabin from a crew of masked assailants. With the assistance of two baddies and a faithful crossbow, Comethazine fights off the intruders with a smile on his face.
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, which featured the breakout hit “LEAD THE RACE (UNDEFEATED)” (11.5 million Spotify streams). Now ready to branch out and show the world different sides of himself, Comethazine prepares for his next step towards becoming a self-made superstar.

Born Frank Childress in 1998, East 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.
