Four months ago, Miami-bred group, City Girls, endured a misfortune when member, JT, handed herself over to Miami’s Federal Detention Center for fraudulent credit card charges. JT’s discharge date was slated for March 21, 2020. But Yung Miami just gave fans some good news.
In a Twitter post, Miami shared a report on when JT will get back home. “JT will be home in December,” she wrote.
In the late spring, JT, born Jatavia Johnson, was doing performances and working as much as possible leading to the time 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 made an announcement during the beginning 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 featured in a 22-minute documentary, Point Blank Period, coordinated by Marcus A. Clarke in August. The doc shows their prosperity until this point. There are scenes of JT and Yung Miami visiting the place where they grew up, going to the BET Awards, the creation of their music video “Millionaire Dick” and the last moments up to JT’s imprisonment.
City Girls got an interminable measure of affection from fans following this minor mishap. La La Anthony was spotted wearing a “Free JT PERIOD!!” shirt while Drake, who worked with them on his Scorpion track “In My Feelings,” wrote on Instagram “Damn, free my shorty.”
JT will be home sooner than later—December that is.
