Hailing from Miami, the rap duo City Girls, comprised of Yung Miami and JT, has become a force to be reckoned with in the rap game. The name “City Girls” is a nod to their roots in Opa-locka and Liberty City, two of Miami’s toughest neighborhoods where both ladies were raised.
Originally, they had no major ambitions of breaking into the rap scene; their aim was merely to create a diss track. Their 2017 debut, “Fu*k Dat Ni**a,” sampled Khia’s 2002 hit “My Neck, My Back” and quickly became a hit, thanks in part to Yung Miami’s promotion. Hits like “Period” and “Girl Code” soon followed, along with their memorable feature on Drake’s “In My Feelings.”
In 2019, they dropped the unforgettable track “Twerk” featuring Cardi B. If you’ve seen the music video, you know it’s an instructional guide to twerking of the highest order. Now, let’s dive into their top songs.
