Yung Miami Says JT’s Being Released from Prison This Month / New City Girls Album Due Spring 2020
If recent news from rapstress Yung Miami (born Caresha Romeka Brownlee) is anything to judge by, 2019 breakout Rap duo City Girls are due for a reunion, much to their fans’ delight.
Since group member JT (Jatavia Johnson) has been serving jail time since 2018 stemming from an aggravated identity theft charge, Miami’s held the group down by solo – an interesting turn of events given the seismic popularity of their tune, ‘Act Up.’
Never wavering support from Johnson via the viral hashtag #FreeJT, Miami says we’ll soon see the hashtag become a memory as her group mate is due to be freed before the month’s end.
In a recent interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Miami said:
“JT coming home this month,” she said. “When she come home we’re working on another album that we’re gonna drop hopefully for spring break. She gotta come home. We gotta record.”
Back in June, Pierre “Pee” Thomas – CEO and founder of the Girls’ label – announced Johnson would be “home within 90 days,” a timeline reiterated by Miami in the interview above (despite reports the federal government’s inmate locator lists JT’s release date as March 21, 2020).
If the September date proves true, the timing of Johnson’s prison release not only builds excitement for the new City Girls album (which Caresha says is due in Spring 2020), but also gives JT time to promote their current ventures by her lonesome while Miami is out on maternity leave. As revealed in the interview above, her bundle of joy is due October 17.
