JT On Growing Into Her Own
The past few years have been a period of immense growth for The City Girls with touring, hit songs and successful individual ventures for both Miami and JT.
Even still, JT said growing through a difficult time took a toll on her.
“I went through a rough patch in my life last year, when I was very new with myself,” JT explained.
“I didn’t hate myself, but I didn’t understand myself or my transition. It was hard for me to wrap [my mind] around who I was becoming, and I went into this dark-a*s place.”
“I was in a situation where I didn’t really have support, I’ll be honest, because I didn’t tell nobody what was going on,” she added. “So everybody was judging me because they didn’t know what was going on. I had to tap into myself to pull myself out of that.”
The rapper admitted living in New York City during that time wasn’t her speed.
Now, however, she and Uzi share a home in Calabasas.
As one of the most relevant female rappers in the genre, the 29-year-old said she’s aware of the responsibility she has as a role model.”
“I feel like I have to represent that, the struggle,” JT said. A”nd my brown-skin girls, when you not feeling that powerful, not feeling that confident, you are beautiful.”
