City Girls have done things few female hip-hop duos or groups have managed, and as their momentum continues to rise Billboard magazine chose to recognize them as the face of what’s to break in 2020 as they continue their trail-blazing winning streak and reach new heights.
The duo, comprised of JT and Yung Miami, has become one of the most successful female hip-hop duos in the history of the Billboard charts. Racking up more than 1.3 BILLION streams, a pair of certified-Platinum Top 40 hits, becoming the #6 most played artist on urban radio (with singles “Twerk” and “Act Up” reaching #1 at Urban Radio), and raves from critics world-wide. City Girls will continue to dominate in 2020. They recently released “You Tried It” off their highly anticipated album which is coming soon.
Ratchet, brilliant, and sometimes both at the same time and sometimes neither at all, these women are showing up and doing the work, wrote The New Yorker. The ascent of the City Girls is one of the most unlikely success stories of the past years, with JT sitting in federal prison in Tallahassee, Fl, turning herself in for fraud in July 2018, the same day Drake’s massive #1 smash “In My Feelings featuring the City Girls was released. Yung Miami held down the group: touring, performing festivals, the BET Awards mainstage and MTV Spring Break, Alexander Wang’s fashion week party, doing interviews and accepting awards as City Girls – and always with a shout-out to her best friend with a heartfelt “Free JT!”
These City Girls would not be derailed nor defeated. With the brash, raw, uncensored swagger rooted in the queens who came before them, the duo released music and videos they had banked knowing JT was turning herself in and kept rising and rising up the charts. The accolades and nominations piled up: 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards Nominations for “Best Hip Hop Video” + Single Of The Year”; 2019 BET Awards Nominations for “Best Group” + “Best New Artist”; BET Social Awards Nomination and Won “Issa Wave” Award; Nominated for Billboard Awards’ Best New Artist.
In September Yung Miami happily announced her pregnancy, showing the world what a working woman was capable of. In October, JT was freed, and the internet exploded, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). Never ones to rest, City Girls returned that same day with the hard-hitting “JT First Day Out;” The City Girls’ rapper takes aim at her opposition and makes sure they know City Girls are here to dominate hip-hop with the legal mess finally behind her. “Left prison with a pimple, not a scratch,” she raps.
JT and Yung Miami are uncensored and unapologetic sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys and working twice as hard to be recognized.
Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song “Fu*k Dat N****” from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation.

Pittsburgh-born abstract painter, David Stephen Johnsons love for the arts stretches back to the 1970s, when he shared a studio space in Chicago with a sculptor from the Chicago Art Institute. Since then, Johnson has been building his own body of work, inspired by the post-war abstract expressionists, and will be unveiling his latest series at the highly anticipated Spectrum Miami art fair to mark his inaugural appearance during Miami Art Week.
Johnson was invited to exhibit his work by Michael Joseph, founder of ARTBLEND, the acclaimed South Florida based organization and one of the longest running gallery exhibitors at Spectrum Miami. Johnson will be presenting his most recent large scale canvas works from his Blue Series and Sono Series as part of this years ARTBLEND collective at booth 720 within the Mana Wynwood Convention Center, from Dec. 4 to Dec. 8. This will mark Johnsons debut and inaugural solo exhibit during Miami Art Week.
Im very excited to be making my debut during Miami Art Week at Spectrum Miami in collaboration with ARTBLEND one of South Floridas most established galleries, said David. Painting is like breathing to me. I am pulled in, to the work, every day. The process is a physical act. I connect to my body and to myself in a sort of visceral dance. The act of painting is unmediated by thought. It starts with a simple stroke or mark that leads to the next one in a continuous flow. Possibility and uncertainty are inherent to my practice. Always a play between anxiety, apprehension and, sometimes, when I get lucky, exhilaration. My language is color. I work with acrylic, house paint, oil, pastels, and graphite, which I apply directly on to the surface and rework with a scraper, paper, and rarely, a brush.
David Stephen Johnson was awarded a scholarship to college as a star quarterback, playing for South Dakota State, and later earned his BA in Business Administration at the University of Minnesota, Carlton School of Business. He fostered his love for art while developing a series of paintings for his first show at Riverside Gallery in Chicago.
While raising his family, David continued a successful career in advertising in both Miami and New York for the prestigious agency Lord, Geller, Federico, Einstein. He embraced his self-taught path in painting, building a deliberately unpublished body of work studying color and shape, partly influenced by post-war abstract expressionists. His natural athleticism and grace led him toward the great action painters, which informs his style and markmaking. In 2017 he retired from the business to pursue his passion for painting. He joined The Silvermine Art Center in Connecticut, a prestigious institute for the arts created in 1908 by the sculptor Solon Borglum. Since then, David has participated in several juried shows, expanding his work to large-scale canvases. He regularly collaborates with interior design firm Wowhaus, and other Greenwich area designers, for commission-based residential and commercial projects. In 2019, David had his first solo show at Southport Galleries in Connecticut.
