It’s been a roller coaster pregnancy.

Phew! Mamas do it all!

Watch Pregnant City Girls rapper Yung Miami’s Energetic BET Awards Performance

Rapper Yung Miami, one half of the southern rap duo City Girls, gave an energetic performance this weekend whilst in her second trimester of pregnancy at the BET Awards on June 23rd at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Ca.

The 25-year old, real name Caresha Brownlee, announced this month inside a documentary about her group’s recent and meteoric rise to fame that she is expecting her second child with her partner, producer Southside, but that did not stop her from taking the stage with back up dancers to perform her chart topping song “Act Up” on stage.

The song is off the group’s second album “Girl Code” featuring label mate Cardi B on the hit song “Twerk”.

Their other label mates include Migos, Stefflon Don and Lil Yachty.

Watch below:

Yung Miami has a son named Jai, born in 2013, from a previous relationship with ex Jai Wiggins. Southside has 5 children from previous relationships.

Though the group is a duo, Yung Miami has had to hold it down her partner JT, (Jatavia Johnson) who is currently serving a sentence for credit card fraud in Florida.

According to the group’s management, and their label Quality Control CEO, Pierre “Pee” Thomas, JT is set to be released from prison by the end of the summer.

Her initial release date was slated for March 21, 2020. In a recent interview with HipHop-N-More, the QC co-founder revealed that JT is due to be released soon, saying, “will be home within the next 90 days.”

Yung Miami’s mom Keenya Young is also serving a sentence for vehicle manslaughter following a high speed chase after she and another man were caught stealing designer bags at Macy’s.

Both girls’ stories are a testament to using talent to escape a rough path and life.

City Girls’ Yung Miami Is Expecting

Congratulations are in order!

When Drake surprised a small female rap duo from Miami, Fl by including a sample of one of their songs on the tail end of his Summer banger, “In My Feelings” without them knowing in advance, he helped shoot the group into the stratosphere and stardom!

Since, the young women, Yung Miami and JT, best friends since Middle school, have launched two Billboard hits, “Twerk” and “Act Up” from their Girl Code album and are bonafide international stars.

Unfortunately, half of the duo is experiencing the fame in prison for fraud and was serving her sentence when their instant meteoric rise started. She is soon to be released.

The other half just announced a pregnancy with her second child. The child’s father is reportedly a producer named Southside who is part of the production team 808 Mafia.

Here is a blurb about the recent announcement from BET:

On Tuesday (June 11), Yung Miami confirmed that she is pregnant with her second child. Amid the rap duo’s rapidly growing acclaim for meteoric hits like “Twerk” and “Act Up,” the news comes as a pleasant surprise to fans.

Yung Miami, born Caresha Brownlee, has been holding down the Miami-established rap duo and repping from the outside while her City Girls halver Jatavia “JT” Johnson serves out a jail sentence.

In an Instagram post previewing the upcoming City Girls documentary, their rise from the streets of Miami to the world stage is painted for the entire rap world to see.

“I’ve been going back and forth to share this moment with my fans,” she wrote in the caption of the IGTV clip. “But on MY TERMS! I wanted to share this with y’all. No one knows what is best for me but GOD, and this was just his timing for me.”

The clip opens with JT and Yung Miami in Los Angeles celebrating  after just signing their contract with music label Quality Control.
