BROOKLYN-BRED ARTIST ANNOUNCES EARLY-2020 HEADLINE TOUR 

G*Starr Ent/ Interscope Records is thrilled to announce the signing of up-and-coming Brooklyn rapper, J.I. the Prince of NY. Hailing from Crown Heights, the 18-year-old artist will embark on a headline tour of the U.S. kicking off on January 15 in Philadelphia. The 16-date tour wraps up on February 8th in his home town of New York. Tickets are on-sale now and are available for purchase now. See below for the full list of tour dates.

With his melodic flow, infectious charisma, and powerfully honest lyrics, J.I. has drawn a devoted fanbase that includes over 728K followers on Instagram. Last month, he earned buzz with Hood Life Krisis Vol. 1 — a seven-track project featuring his soulful but hard-hitting single Need Me (now at over 3 million streams on Spotify). Today, J.I. also shares the video for “Love Won’t Change.”

Born Justin Irvin Rivera to a family of Puerto Rican descent, J.I. got his start freestyling with his brothers at the age of 11. Within a few years he began posting his freestyles on Instagram, and soon caught the attention of legendary rapper/producer/executive Jermaine Dupri. Naming iconic artists like Tupac Shakur, Big Pun and DMX among his influences, he dropped his debut single “No Static” in 2016. By the end of that year, the then-15-year-old had garnered more than 500,000 views on his YouTube channel, which now boasts over 36 million views and 296K subscribers.
