Video: Comethazine – “Nonsense”
Fresh Off Receiving a Gold Plaque for His Single “Walk,” Comethazine’s Stunting Transcends the Physical Plane in a New Visual Off Bawskee 2
“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
Bursting onto the scene with ferocious bite-sized bangers, Comethazine is the new generation’s most consistent source of slaps. Finding the perfect visual accompaniment for Comethazine’s chaotic and hard-hitting trap sound, the Alamo/Interscope signee shares “Nonsense,” his latest music video. Barely clocking-in at over 1 minute long, “Nonsense” is a frenzied banger, complete with carnival organ, plinking synths, and earth-shaking bass, as Comethazine delivers highly-energetic bars: “Bitch, miss me with that nonsense, you broke, got nine cents/I ball hard like Dennis Rodman, no lyin’.” In the video, Comethazine escapes an interaction with the police by transforming into a green, ghostly super villain, phasing through New York City streets to indulge in a hedonistic rendezvous with devilish models. With over 10 million streams on Spotify, “Nonsense” is a highlight from Bawskee 2, Comethazine’s recent album.
With over 50k album equivalent units in sales, Bawskee 2 refines and expands Comethazine’s winning formula, building hooks around witty boasts and snarling delivery: “First name Benjamin, last name Counter/Pull up with this motherfuckin’ tec, fuck a bouncer.” Complementing his neon aesthetic with distorted and alien production from the likes of Divanand, Trillogy, Nyombo, and others, Bawskee 2 is a tour-de-force of aggressive and succinct rhyming, designed to make you punch through the roof of your car.
Crescendoing in grassroots popularity since its release in 2018, Comethazine’s breakout hit “Walk” recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA. Dominated by woozy synths and booming bass, “Walk” is 96 seconds of outrageous confidence, aggressive boasts, and irresistible attitude. With prominent placement in Spotify playlists like Clout Culture and Most Necessary and with a popular, Cole Bennett-directed music video, “Walk” racked up over 131 million streams on all platforms. Garnering 300k streams per day on Spotify, and with a new remix featuring A$AP Rocky, “Walk” is only the beginning for Comethazine.
Says Comethazine, “It feels good to have made it this far and to go Gold with no features. It’s all for the fans. Bawskee 3.5 is on the way.”

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.
