City Girls received immense attention after being featured on Drake’s “In My Feelings” off of his latest album Scorpion. The album dropping was a bittersweet moment for JT who was due to turn herself into jail 18 hours later.
The song spurred a viral dance movement (Thanks to Shiggy, Odell Beckham, and others) and has been dominating the summer charts since.
5. City Girls Were Signed Even Though The label Knew JT Would Be Going Away
For all the haters who said JT going away would ruin her career, let’s stop right there. According to QC CEO Pee, when he signed the City Girls, he already knew JT would be going to jail.
JT was convicted of fraud charges and sentenced to serve 6 months in jail. In the documentary, she explains that she’s always had a job and been a hard worker but minimum wage wasn’t enough. The artists state that workers need to be paid more because “Who wanna be broke”?
12 hours before JT was reported to turn herself in, she was in the studio.
JT reportedly has to serve only 6 months before her release. Before turning herself in, JT had a face-time call with fellow QC label-mate, Quavo. The rapper gave her a piece of advice, “Get that shit over with so you can go get that real paper.”
According to Yung Miami, when JT does get out, the haters are going to be super hurt, “When she, [JT], get out, they gone really hate us. They gone want us dead. That’s how bad it’s going to be. They gone be like them hoes ain’t humble no more, at all. PERIOD.”
