As of now it looks like we won’t be getting any new City Girls music for the next 8 months.
Jatavia Johnson, professionally known as JT; makes up 1/2 of the City Girls. Yung Miami who makes up the other 1/2 has been holding it down while JT has been gone, serving a two year sentence for credit card fraud. Quality Control has been doing everything in their power; hiring some of the strongest and most powerful lawyers in the biz to bring JT home with no avail.
In a recent attempt to bring the budding rapper home, the legal team requested that a judge allow JT to serve the rest of her sentence in halfway house, which would allow her to get back in the studio. In the documents, JT and her attorney asked that she be released early, and cited both her good behavior and newfound fame as reasoning. JT “is one of two girls that make up the rap duo City Girls. Beginning around her change of plea City Girls became a force in the music industry. They have grown an intense fan base and have developed relationships with the elite of the elite,” her attorney wrote. He then said, “It is without hesitation that I can proffer that you will never hear from this Defendant regarding any type of crime, much less an economic one. Granting this recommendation will allow the Defendant to get back to the studio where she belongs.”
As of now, JT will have to finish the remaining 8 months of her sentence in a Tallahassee prison. City Girls are hot hot hot on the charts right now so hopefully we get some new music from this duo SOON, because where there is a will, there most definitely IS a way!
