JT has a solo project on the way.
During a recent Q&A with Kali Uchis for Interview Magazine, the City Girls member confirmed that she has a new EP in the works that will come out after the release of her group’s new album, which is expected before the end of the year. “I really want my first EP to have that raw, grungy sound,” JT told Uchis. “I wanted to do that for my birthday [Dec. 3], but I think it’s too soon because I’m so picky. So probably the top of next year.”
She added, “I’m going to figure it out when I have the time and I have the sounds that I want. But I’m a hard thinker. I want everything to be perfect and this time I’m going to be presented by myself, so I really want it to look like everything.”
As previously reported by REVOLT, back in July, JT released her hit single “No Bars.” The song hit No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart and reached the top 5 of the streamer’s all-genre chart. It marked her first solo single since 2019’s “JT First Day Out,” which celebrated her release from a Florida prison to a halfway house. The Miami rapper also launched No Bars Reform, a mission to help formerly incarcerated women navigate through life after prison. The initiative’s official website provides many resources, including employment, housing, therapy, substance abuse help, and even opportunities for people to get involved and join communities to help other women. “After spending almost two years in a Florida prison before being released in 2020, JT has vowed to use her voice and platform to help other incarcerated women rehabilitate into society by assisting with resources such as therapy, job placement, social services, and housing,” a statement on the site reads.
