WHAT IT IS: The 18-year-old Brooklyn native J.I. the Prince of NY, born Justin Irvin Rivera, got his start freestyling with his brothers at the tender age of 11. Known for his melodic flow, infectious charisma and powerfully honest lyrics, the young rapper dropped his debut single, “No Static,” in 2016.

With lead single “Need Me” off his 2019 album, Hood Life Krisis Vol. 1, boasting 25.3m+ streams on Spotify alone, J.I. has collectively amassed 250m+ combined streams in the U.S. and plans on releasing more music in the coming months.
