Tuesday afternoon, Yung Miami announced her partner JT was officially out of prison after serving more than a year behind bars.
“YOU BITCHES IN TROUBLE!! MY BITCH HOME!” Yung Miami wrote on Instagram. Shortly after, a slew of artists and hip-hop figures commented, welcoming the other half of City Girls home, as she shared her first image on her own page, writing, “BITCH IM RIGHT ON TIME FOR THE SEASON CHANGE.”
In celebration of her release, the Miami-bred rapper blessed fans with a new song titled “First Day Out.” Produced by Twysted Genius, the song dropped at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday, giving fans something to look forward to as she reconnects with her other half.
In the summer of 2018, JT began serving a 24-month prison sentence on credit card fraud charges. But, at the same time, the City Girls also began making a name for themselves in the industry.
“It’s a minor setback for a major comeback because it’s a movement. Everybody know JT now,” Yung Miami told Rolling Stone last summer. “When she come back, everyone will be paying attention. When she get out, she gon’ be big. God brought us this far.”
It was initially reported that JT, who’s legal name Jatavia Shakara Johnson, would be released in March 2020; but during a red carpet interview back in August, Quality Control boss Pierre “Pee” Thomas said the rapper would be home “within the next 90 days.”
“When JT come home she going to the halfway house,” Thomas said during an August Hot 97 interview, ” but the great thing about the halfway house is they let you go on work release, so soon as she’s out she’s gonna be locked in the studio working.”
