J.I. The Prince Of NY is back with a new volume of Hood Life Krisis and it’s sure to be counted in as one of the sickest releases of 2019!
Hood Life Krisis Vol. 2 contains six unreleased tracks including ‘Love Scars’ which displays J.I.’s undeniable talent. His bars are crazy good and the beats have us bopping along. It’s been on repeat on a loop in our heads since it dropped, and it’s something we couldn’t be happier about!
Talking of his current accomplishments J.I. says, “I made it farther than I expected to. Where I’m from, nobody ever got put in the spotlight unless it was for something negative. I’m like the mayor of my hood now. I grew up wanting to be bigger than life itself and for me to even get a glimpse of success, it means everything. At this point I don’t plan on going nowhere so get used to me.”
We’re here for it. We’re hooked on J.I. and have no intention of going anywhere — we can’t wait to hear even more from him in 2020, and we’re not the only ones who feel this way:

As well as releasing TWO projects this year, J.I. was also featured on Genius:
Also known as Justin Irvin Rivera to a family of Puerto Rican heritage, J.I. began his craft at the age of 11 when he started freestyling with his brothers. Within a few short years he began posting his freestyles on Instagram and caught the attention of music legend Jermaine Dupri!
With names the likes of Tupac, Big Pun and DMX as some of the icons among his biggest influences, you can hear real inspiration in every track he’s dropped to date.
In 2016 he released his debut single ‘No Static’ and by the end of that year, at 15 years of age, had received 500,000 views on his YouTube channel which today boasts over 47 million views and 338,000 subscribers! That is not all though, as his fanbase continues to grow his streams in the US alone are over 60 million currently including over 793,000 followers across platforms!
We at THP have a feeling that this is only the start for J.I. The Prince Of NY, and we have a feeling that you will agree!
