If you’re familiar with some of the regulars that we post about on Lyrical Lemonade, Comethazine shouldn’t be a new name for you. Although it has been quite some time since he released his song “Walk” that Cole did a video for and he has been relatively quiet as of late, you should be familiar with the fact that he plays by his own rules and doesn’t need anyone else telling him what to do, because he’s going to do what he wants regardless. His ruthless, hard-nosed deliveries are nothing short of entertaining, and even when some of his lyrics get intense, fans seem to not be able to get enough of the 2019 XXL Freshman.
After a bit of silence, I couldn’t have been more excited to see that Comethazine is back and better than ever with his latest song “Spinback” as well as an incredible self-directed and edited music video for the awesome single. As it opens, Comethazine is walking down a dark and ominous alleyway as a masked gentleman is hanging out on a set of stairs. As the rapper continues walking towards the street where there is a bit more light, a gang of individuals collects behind him, creeping in his shadows before cocking a gun and pointing at him.
When this happens, he locks his phone (according to the subtitles that are displayed throughout the video) and turns around, prompting them to fire a round, sending him to the ground. As he lays there, blood drips from his diamond-filled mouth as the sound of ambulance alarms approaches the scene.
While lying there, he menacingly spits his bars without a care in the world, and once the ambulance picks him up and works on him in the back, he continues to chillingly rap along with a frightening grin on his face, proving that it’s going to take a lot more than a bullet to bring down Comethazine. While I have kind of gotten away from Comethazine’s music in recent memory, “Spinback” is a song that might just draw me back in, so make sure you check it out as soon as you get the chance, so you don’t miss out on another great record and visual from the East St. Louis native.
