Use char and ASCII.

\starttext

\startMPcode
  for i=0 upto 3 :
      for j=0 upto 3 :
          draw unitsquare scaled 4cm shifted (4*i*cm,4*j*cm) ;
      endfor ;
  endfor ;
  for i=0 upto 4 :
      for j=0 upto 4 :
          label.llft(char(i*5+j+ASCII "A"), (4*i*cm,4*j*cm)) ;
      endfor ;
  endfor ;
\stopMPcode

\stoptext
