Yung Miami Opens Up About Her & JT’s Decision To Focus On Their Solo Careers

On Monday, June 3, Complex published an exclusive interview with Yung Miami. According to the outlet, their conversation with the rapper occurred weeks before May 13.

During the conversation, Miami explained that she’s recently been inspired by the haters. Additionally, she explained that the naysayers made her want to hop in the studio to spit some solo bars.

“I had to really get back in my bag. People had just been talking to me crazy… So just going through s**t really motivated me to get in the studio and make music,” she said.

Furthermore, the rapper shared what inspired her to want to release an entire solo project. She explained that her and JT’s last City Girls project, ‘RAW,’ released in October 2023, “didn’t do too well,” and they were just in “two different spaces.”

“I think when the City Girls album [RAW] just dropped, and it didn’t do too well, and we was just trying to do our press run. The whole rollout of the album was just so bad because we was just in two different spaces,” she said. “We older now, and she [JT] was doing her own thing. She on the West Coast, I’m in Miami. I’m doing my own thing. And I felt like naturally, when she doing her own thing, it just worked for her. And when I’m doing my own thing, it worked for me. But when we get together as a group, it just wasn’t connecting. It just wasn’t working no more.”

Yung Miami explained that she and JT were both at the point where they decided to pursue their own solo projects.

The Rapper Speaks On Setting Boundaries With Fans

As the interview continued, Miami explained that she feels the only way to be successful is to “block out the noise.”

“I feel like we in a trolling era, so you got to block out the noise,” she explained. “…So it’s just like you got to keep going and you got to just learn how to block out the noise. That’s the only way you’re going to be successful…”

The 30-year-old explained that she used to be so “open” with fans, and it used to be “fun” to show her natural personality. However, now she’s decided to put a “boundary” up due to “negative reactions.”

“I feel like I used to be so open. I would go on Instagram Live and just talk. I’m not doing it no more. I do it, but it is not fun no more. People are just overly invested,” she explained. “It used to be fun. This is how I came in, going live, being who I am. But now I could say anything and this s**t so serious or it’s so negative or it’s so bad. So that’s that boundary that I had to put up. I’m not going Live, and I’m just going to talk less; less is more. I’m not doing a lot of things I used to do.”

Ultimately, Miami explained that she hates that her decision impacts fans who genuinely support her. However, being open on social media is just no longer “fun mentally.”

Yung Miami and JT Recently Made Headlines

As The Shade Room previously reported, Yung Miami and JT left fans questioning their friendship status earlier this year. At the time, Miami accused JT of sneak dissing her “for weeks” in her recently released songs.

In response, JT accused Miami of “playing dumb” and added that her fellow City Girl rapper enjoyed seeing social media users drag her. However, Miami disagreed.

Although the pair’s spat on the internet went viral, they eventually made up in a private conversation and declared their love for one another online, per The Shade Room.

However, it wouldn’t be long before the pair sparked chatter on the internet again. Later that month, they each promoted their solo, rather than joint, releases, per The Shade Room. While speaking with Complex, Miami touched on her and JT’s viral spat before letting it be known where their relationship will forever stand.

“I think it’s sisterhood. That’s my friend, of course, but that’s more like family to me,” Miami explained. “I’ve been knowing JT my whole damn life, so that’s not our first argument. It probably won’t be our last argument. This time, it went to the Internet. It was a lot of emotions. We got people pulling us left and right, and it just was some s**t that we just talked about behind closed doors, like, ‘Girl, I love you, and let’s keep pushing.’ It ain’t never that deep where it’ll go farther than that.”
