Review: J.I. Reminisces On Losing His Girl In New “Letter 2 U” Music Video

by | Oct 15, 2020 | Music

Every time J.I. hops on the mic, we know we’re getting some of the realist stories coming straight from his personal experiences. “Letter 2 U” is the latest track depicting how a relationship spiraled downwards yet knowing there’s tons of love from both sides.

The 19-year-old rapper gets introspective on how his actions caused the downfall with simple visuals featuring classic Greek artwork, moments of solitude in a dark room, and hanging out in the New York streets with his boys. As someone who’s released multiple projects just this past year, he’s not finished releasing tracks that are quickly gaining more and more attention of the public.

In “Letter 2 U,” he raps about losing his girl to the streets while fully accepting how their relationship wasn’t going anywhere. The reflective piece laments on how the relationship flourished with the lyrics “you know I don’t treat you how I wish I could/but it’s you I want” flowing over a concise, minimalistic beat produced by Byrd and DOC.


The rising Brooklyn rapper has made a name for himself with the EP releases of N.Y Hood Life Krisis Vol. 1 and N.Y Hood Life Krisis Vol. 2. Each track personally digs into the struggles he’s faced in the hood, with females, and with the people surrounding him. J.I., also known as Justin Irvin Rivera, is leveling up and if you haven’t caught up yet, check out this “Letter 2 U” music video for reference.

“Letter 2 U” comes as the first release off of his upcoming project, Hood Krisis Vol. 3. Who’s ready for some new music from J.I.?!
