City Girls Rapper JT Released from Federal Custody

JT is officially a free woman.

Per TMZ, the rapper — one half of hip-hop duo City Girls — was released from federal custody last Friday.

After the artist — born Jatavia Shakara Johnson — began serving a two-year prison sentence for credit card fraud in June 2018, she was transferred from FCI Tallahassee to a halfway house in Atlanta last October.

Over the weekend, the “Act Up” MC celebrated her freedom by taking selfie videos from the comfort of her own bed.

“Woke up in my own bed for the first time in 2 years! Happppppyyyyy,” she captioned the post.

JT is currently on probation, must take a drug test within the first 15 days of her release, is not allowed to have controlled substances or a firearm, and must complete 200 hours of community service.

While at the halfway house, the musician was able to leave so she could work and/or visit family and friends. She even dropped her track “JT First Day Out” hours after entering the institution.
