Since JT’s incarceration, Yung Miami has been holding everything down by performing on stages across the country and releasing new videos like “Twerk” with Cardi B. Things are quickly sizzling head fast for the City Girls duo, interestingly enough they didn’t always think they’d be rapping professionally.
“Honestly I’ve always been gifted with rapping but I never would’ve thought that I’d be a rapper,” JT told VIBE las year. “Like, I never would’ve imagined me, like, being here in y’all face, like, doing this ‘cause it was really more of us having fun when we did the song which was in August. So, we didn’t think it was gonna get this serious, like, ‘Oh we got a record deal, wassup.’”
