City Girls Argue They ‘Could Do Conscious Rap’ If They Wanted To — They Just Don’t Want To

If there is one thing a rap fan will do, it’s criticizing female rappers for outlandish standards they refuse to hold anyone else to. Case in point: City Girls, the fun-loving Miami duo whose music is all about living the high life on someone else’s dime and turning up in the streets, has gotten more than their fair share of criticism that their music isn’t deep enough. While this echoes complaints that other women in hip-hop have made that they aren’t taken seriously enough as artists, City Girls defended themselves in a new interview with Complex.

“I feel like a lot of times, people tend to forget and try to discredit us and say we make bad music,” JT told Complex’s Speedy Morman during their interview. “And I never, ever, ever feel like that. I feel like everything we put out is fun and is a bop.” She took it a step further, insisting that the duo could just as easily switch up for a more socially aware style, but that it wouldn’t suit their true musical philosophy. “It’s not conscious rap, but I could definitely do a conscious rap,” JT insisted. “I feel like our music is for freedom and fun and partying and to make women feel good and to pop they sh*t.”

For what it’s worth, their approach is much more lucrative, as Cardi B once pointed out, reminding fans that when she made emotional, vulnerable songs like “Be Careful” she was rejected, but when she made “WAP,” the song went No. 1 basically overnight. ““When I did ‘Be Careful,’ people was talking mad sh*t in the beginning,” she reminded her fans on Instagram. “So it’s like if that’s what people ain’t tryna hear, then, alright, I’mma start rapping about my p*ssy again.” Meanwhile, Rapsody had an even better take on the “conscious rap” argument, saying that “[artists like] Cardi B makes conscious music — that’s conscious to what she was doing.”

Jt of the city girls went on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to talk to her followers about her weight loss goals for her Coachella performance on Friday, April 15, 2022. The Twerkulator rapper Weighed in at 146.7 pounds with a caption that sai- at 5’.2 it was heavy for her size and that she’ll be happy at a weight of 133-135 before she gets to Coachella which equals a total weight loss of 13 lbs give or take. She also revealed that she was seeing a nutritionist to help and unapologetically asked her fans for their help during this process. Showing pics of every meal (see below) she started her morning with rice cakes with peanut butter, bananas and blueberry’s on top which she admitted to only eating one as it got her full. She also showed a pic of water with cucumbers, and lemon mixed in, we are assuming this is what she is drinking throughout the day and for lunch she showed a spinach salad with grilled chicken and hard-boiled eggs on the side, admitting that she didn’t have any dressing to go with the meal as the ones that she had had dairy in the.  This no-nonsense diet seems to be working as at the end of the night she dropped almost one pound.  We are here to support you JT, we know when you hit that Coachella stage you will look 🔥🔥🔥🔥.
