City Girls’ Net Worth and Career
City Girls recorded their debut track called “F**k Dat N*gga”. However, after their breakthrough, their career came to a halt after JT was arrested for credit card fraud. Nonetheless, Yung Miami promoted the song by sharing it across various social media accounts and by tipping DJs at the club for plays.
Shortly after JT’s release, the duo signed to Quality Control Music. The track “F**k Dat N*gga” went viral online and peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200 charts. The official music video for the track came out in January 2018 and featured an appearance from rapper Trina.
In May 2018, they released their debut mixtape titled “Period”. It reached No. 16 on Heatseekers Album the same month. To add more, the album was ranked 26h best Hip Hop album by Rolling Stone in 2018. The project consisted of hit singles like “Tighten Up”, “I’ll Take Your Man”, and “Where The Bag At”.
In November 2018, City Girls released their debut album “Girl Code” which featured prominent rappers like Cardi B, Lil Baby, and Jacquees. One of their biggest collaboration was when they worked with Drake on the hit single “In My Feelings”. The track was featured on Drake’s fifth album “Scorpion”. It managed to peak at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
City Girls exposure was on the rise. Their album “Girl Code” entered Billboard 200 at number 63 while their breakout single “Twerk” featuring Cardi B. reached at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100.

City Girls Controversy Over Homophobia
In August 2018, Yung Miami was one of the rappers who faced backlash for making homophobic remarks. Tweets from her history began to circulate. In a 2013 tweet, she said, “she wouldn’t want one of her sons to be gay and would beat him if she found out.” Given that the LGBTQ community is a big fan of City Girls, the tweet did damage their profile.
Yung Miami apologized, but she soon became embroiled in another homophobic scandal. During an appearance on the radio show The Breakfast Club, she said that the tweet had little to do with the LGBTQ community. She also attempted to illustrate it. She compared it to your mother saying, “If you break my table, I’m going to beat you.”
City Girls Net Worth (Combined): $3 million
JT Net Worth: $1.5 million
Yung Miami Net Worth: $1.5 million
These two greatly increased their fee and price. They now charge up to $40,000 for a single broadcast. They also earn more than $15,000+ for club appearances.
Some believe that JT’s incarceration aided the duo’s success. It also kept their followers interested in what was going to happen next.
For the two ladies, this is only the beginning. They will one day be able to equal the wealth of female hip hop stars and groups that have come before them.
Since middle school, JT and Yung Miami have been best friends. They grew up in a poor neighborhood of Miami. They accomplished everything as a team. They began performing in strip clubs and nightclubs when they were 17 years old. Yung Miami was a fan of trap music and gradually introduced JT into the mix. Miami was an Instagram influencer of her fashion line at the time. City Girls combined net worth is $3 million.
