Back in May, the rapper attempted to leave prison early. Her lawyer argued, “The Defendant, also known as JT in the music industry, is one of two girls that make up the rap duo City Girls. Beginning around her change of plea City Girls became a force in the music industry. They have grown an intense fan base and have developed relationships with the elite of the elite.” She told the judge she wanted to get back to the studio and work.

Her lawyer continued, “It is without hesitation that I can proffer that you will never hear from this Defendant regarding any type of crime, much less an economic one. Granting this recommendation will allow the Defendant to get back to the studio where she belongs.”

The judge came back and denied the motion.
