City Girls Member Yung Miami Gives Update on JT’s Prison Release
Four months ago, Miami-bred group City Girls suffered a setback when member JT turned herself in to Miami's Federal Detention Center for apparent fraudulent credit card charges. JT's original release date was slated for March 21, 2020. Now, fellow group member Yung Miami has some good news regarding JT's prison release.
In a new Twitter post, Yung Miami shared an update on when JT will come home. "JT will be home in December," Miami wrote on Twitter.
In the summer, JT, born Jatavia Johnson, was doing performances and working as much as possible leading up to the moment of her incarceration. "Did more than I thought I could imagine in this short period of time out on bond," she wrote in an Instagram post before she went to jail. "Now it's time for me to knock this down and come back strong forever."
On the City Girls Instagram page, the group released a statement following the start of JT's sentence.
“Before we was rapping we was hustling," the post began. "We never been no bum bitches always been about our MONEY!! Jt left to vacation but she’ll be back sooner than later stronger than before.”
In other City Girls-related news, the group starred in a 22-minute documentary, Point Blank Period, directed by Marcus A. Clarke in August. The doc covers the group's success up until this point. There are scenes of JT and Yung Miami visiting their hometown, attending the BET Awards, the making of their music video "Millionaire Dick" and the final moments that led up to JT turning herself in.
City Girls received an endless amount of love from fans following this minor setback. Actress La La Anthony was spotted wearing a "Free JT PERIOD!!" shirt while Drake, who worked with the group on his Scorpion track "In My Feelings," wrote on Instagram "Damn, free my shorty."
JT will be home sooner than later—December that is.
