New York’s J.I. connects with NAV & Lil Durk for Painless 2.

No pain, no gain.

August 7, 2020 Rehana Harmony

Carefree and living his best [life] 18-year-old J.I. the Prince of NY, pulled back the curtain on his star-studded collaboration with Lil Durk and NAV yesterday, with an accompanying clip. 

“Painless 2” comes on the heels of his critically acclaimed label debut EP, Welcome to G*Starr, Vol. 1

Shot in Atlanta, the rappers link up for the – Eif Rivera and Jon J directed – cut; during, we see the star switch between scenes of him getting cozy on a couch with a baddie (and a bag of money.) To performing with Durkio in a stash house and then glowing alongside NAV in a warehouse full of blinking black lights.

On updated version we hear the pain behind the melodic and smooth track —as each rapper reflects on their experiences with money, women, and humbler beginnings.
