Biography

Frank Childress makes music under the moniker Comethazine, and he’s made a name for himself with numerous hit singles, mixtapes, and an album. In 2019, he was featured on the XXL Freshman list, and at just 23 years old, he’s already scored a Platinum-selling hit. 

Born on July 6, 1998, the young rapper grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois, and started making music when he was a teenager. After gaining a following on Soundcloud, he began honing his craft even more when he quit his job to pursue a career in rap. After leaving behind work as a mechanic, Frank collaborated with Rich the Kid on the track “Bands,” which made it to No. 20 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. Since then, he’s continued his upward trajectory on a steady rise to stardom.

Comethazine: The Bio 

Growing up in Illinois, Frank quickly developed a passion for music. He spent around $200 as a teenager to get his first microphone, telling XXL, “Anybody could do the shit, so I was like fuck it.” With a carefree attitude and plenty of creative energy to spare, Frank used his new mic to start producing his own songs.  Comethazine’s early recordings featured lyrics that were highly topical, focusing primarily on social issues. However, as he kept developing his style, Frank started writing lyrics that are more on par with mainstream hip-hop. “I actually used to write – I flowed on some Joey Bada$$ type shit,” he told XXL, referring to a fellow socially conscious rapper. “That shit wasn’t going nowhere for me. So I was like, ‘Let me do some ignorant shit, see if this shit work.’”  This attitude worked for Comethazine, and he continued working hard on music. His constant beat-making and rapping bugged his mom, but he kept on going. “I didn’t have a video game and shit,” he told XXL, “So I was always in my room, just recording. My mom hated that shit, she would yell and tell me ‘Shut the fuck up!’ I went to night school, so I would sleep all fuckin’ day, and record all night after school.” Several of Frank’s early releases, which he made at home himself and posted on Soundcloud, gained hundreds of thousands of plays. The success inspired Frank to quit his job – he was a mechanic at the time – and spend virtually all of his time and energy on music. 

Comethazine’s Influences

Comethazine describes himself as being inspired by a wide array of rappers. His influences include Big Mike, Chief Keef, Shy Glizzy, Too $hort, 8Ball & MJG, Jim Jones, and others. His style has been compared to that of fellow rapper and friend Smokepurrp, as well as to Playboy Carti and Tay-K. 

Comethazine’s Early Successes

  • Comethazine scored a Gold-certified hit with “Bands,” which features Rich the Kid, in 2018. The song was his second single to be released outside of Spotify, and it was immediately followed by his most successful track to date.
  • The next song after “Bands” was “Walk,” a Platinum-selling track that features A$AP Rocky as a guest artist. The song made it to No. 5 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop Bubbling Under charts.

The Bawkshee Mixtape Series

  • In 2018, Comethazine released Bawkshee, his first mixtape, via Alamo Records. The mixtape is the first of a series of 4, each of which made it on the US Billboard 200 album charts. Bawkshee peaked at No. 136 and features the singles “Piped Up,” “Bands,” “Oowee,” and “Walk.”
  • Bawkshee 2 came shortly after in January 2019. Released via Alamo, this mixtape features the singles “Nonsense” and “DeMar DeRozan.” It made it to No. 61 on the Billboard 200, No. 36 on the US R&B and Hip-Hop chart, and No. 66 on the Canadian charts.
  • Bawkshee 3.5 is the most successful mixtape in the series. Released on July 26, 2019, via Alamo, this mixtape earned positive reviews from critics and made it to No. 53 on the Billboard 200. There are no features on the mixtape, and all tracks were co-written by Frank.

Pandemic: Frank’s Debut Album 

In 2020, Frank released Pandemic, his first full-length studio album, via Alamo Records. The album features the singles “Glide” and “No Front.” Pandemic made it to No. 151 on the Billboard 200 in the US and was met with positive responses from critics in the hip-hop scene. Comethazine followed up Pandemic with the fourth entry in his Bawkshee mixtape series. Bawkshee 4 dropped on October 23, 2020, making it to No. 177 on the Billboard 200.
