Rise to success with City Girls
Of course, with Yung Miami flying on fan radar as one half of City Girls, we have to start there. Her and JT’s first track together, “F**k Dat N***a,” took off immediately and caught the attention of Quality Control Music.
This Florida-born duo’s debut album, Period, followed shortly thereafter and there was an IMMEDIATE vibe among the Gworlds. Later that same year, Girl Code was released, spawning popular hits like “Act Up” and “Twerk.”
Yung Miami has definitely hit the ground running with her and JT’s rap career, and it looks like the hard work has definitely paid off! In addition, it brought a whole wave of people who campaigned for the “Period!”. Mantra while proudly identifying themselves as “City Girls” and “City Boys”.
Hold it while JT was locked up
Shortly after City Girls began to explode, however, JT ended up serving nearly two years in prison for identity fraud.
Despite that big bump in the road, Yung Miami was determined to keep the momentum going. From capturing a lighted video for “Act Up” to providing features for artists like Quavo, Saweetie, Juicy J and Lloyd, Yung Miami captured it and kept City Girls talking.
We should also note that the credits for these features were all under “City Girls,” even though JT was temporarily MIA
Although City Girls continued to produce hits after the release of JT, Yung Miami worked hard to ensure the success never stopped! And this is on PERIOD!
Sharing a hilarious friendship with Saucy Santana
We also have to mention that Yung Miami’s close friendship with Saucy Santana is one that will last forever, as these stars aren’t afraid to ruthlessly shadow each other.

Serves a memorable Roaches line during her solo debut
Speaking of Yung Miami’s humor, it culminated in a very memorable line at the end of Rap Freaks, her solo debut.
In particular, she instructed her Boo Diddy to “put it in [his] face like the roaches” before saying she “will sit [his] rich a** sleep, buenas noches.” This, in particular, was a clever reference to a story Diddy had previously told about waking up with a face full of roaches sometime in his pre-stardom days.

We should also point out that Yung Miami’s decision to rhyme “roaches” with “buenas noches” had Megan Thee Stallion laughing hysterically on Instagram Live.

Working to become The Black Oprah through Caresha Please
In mid-2022, Yung Miami started a new venture with her Caresha Please podcast. The show quickly took off with a lot of hype from viewers, and this was encouraged by Yung Miami proclaiming, “I want to be Black Oprah,” as previously reported by The Shade Room.
Although Caresha Please is less than a year old, it has already created numerous moments loved by fans. Check out just a few of our favorite moments below.

Advancing her acting career with you
Finally, we have to give Yung Miami her props for securing a role in You People. As a result, she got to star alongside veteran actors like Eddie Murphy, Nia Long, Lauren London and Jonah Hill in the production of Kenya Barris, which premiered earlier this year.
We love seeing Yung Miami diversify her resume, and we can’t wait to see what other projects she pursues!
