City Girls’ JT—aka Jatavia Shakara Johnson—will be a free woman by the end of September.
This news comes from Pierre “Pee” Thomas, the founder of the duo’s label Quality Control. In an interview with Miami’s 99 Jamz radio station, Thomas said that Johnson “will be home within the next 90 days.”
Johnson, who is currently serving a two-year sentence for credit card fraud, was originally due to be released March 21, 2020, according to records obtained by the Miami Herald. The rapper was up for early release last month, but the request was denied, although the judge did refer her case to the Bureau of Prisons, Vibe reported.
The news of the Florida rapper’s early release follows an emotional revelation from Yung Miami, the other half of City Girls, who recently took to Instagram to announce her second pregnancy.
The duo first made it big after being featured on Drake’s 2018 hit “In My Feelings.” Since then, the ladies have dropped their sophomore album, Girl Code, which features songs like “Act Up” and the Cardi B-assisted “Twerk.” They were also recently nominated for Best Group and Best New Artist at the BET Awards 2019.
