City Girls fans, it’s time to act up.

JT is home!

Yung Miami, half of the duo City Girls, announced JT’s release from jail on Instagram late Tuesday afternoon.

“YOU BITCHES IN TROUBLE!! MY BITCH HOME,” the post read.

To celebrate, the group is dropping a new track entitled “JT First Day Out” Tuesday night at 10 p.m.

A lot has changed for the “Act Up” rapper in her 13-month stint behind bars. Since being convicted of identity theft in June 2018, JT has missed City Girls’ ascension to platinum recording artists, the first couple of months of Yung Miami’s pregnancy and countless opportunities to work with other artists.

While it’ll take time to adjust to her newfound celebrity, at least one person is ecstatic to have her home: Yung Miami. The Miami-Dade native has talked extensively about how JT’s incarceration made her adjustment to fame even more difficult.

With JT officially a free woman, a new album can’t be too far off. Fans hope Tuesday’s release is the first step.
