19-year-old rapper, J.I. releases Hood Life Krisis Vol. 3, the third installment under the mixtape trilogy that broke him into the hip-hop music scene in 2019. Before today’s release, J.I delivered two tracks from the EP, “Letter 2 U” and “Excuse My Pain,” which have built momentum for this anticipated project. Both tracks led to recognition from various outlets including, XXL, Complex, Billboard and more.
For the release of HLK Vol. 3, J.I also launched the music video of “R&B Shit” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The music video was filmed in their home city of New York after A Boogie’s birthday; both artists are known to be part of the new generation of hip-hop coming out of New York City. In the highly anticipated collaboration, the two team up in a video directed by Kid Art to tell “another ghetto love story with a plot twist,” watch HERE. In addition, J.I expanded into his Latin roots by featuring “Suficiente” (Sufficient), a solo Reggaeton track, which has built up from his recent Latin single in his Summer 2020 EP, Welcome To GStarr Vol. 1, “Spanglish” featuring Myke Towers.
