He’s probably right. But even with the apathy—or maybe it’s indifference—he might feel towards the clout, and all of the external factors that come with being a rapper in the modern era, when it comes to making music, that’s what Comethazine is all about.
Do you have any resolutions for 2019?
Nope. I’m gonna do everything the same—I’ve been doing shit good lately.
Music. That’s all I do.
That’s it? Do you ever chill with your friends?
Yeah, but that’s all we do together, too.
Do you guys ever hit a wall while you’re working?
No. Everything we do is always better than what we did before. We go harder, always.
So, after you come out with something that does really well, like “Bands,” how do you judge if something’s better? By how many streams it gets? Or just your gut instinct?
It’s just the energy of the song. If I could drop songs like “Walk” every day, then shit, I would just keep doing that, but on a different beat.
If a song doesn’t have that kind of energy, do you just toss it out and start over?
All the time. I don’t finish the song unless it’s a hit. I mean, shit is only like a minute-forty seconds long, so I’m gonna put my all into that.
Do you know when something is going to be a hit?
Instantly. Well, I guess not, though, ‘cause I thought “Walk” was gonna be horrible.
Yeah. I don’t know why, I just thought all my other shit was better. “Bands,” too—I didn’t think that was gonna hit.
