Yung Miami and JT have been friends since middle school

Yung Miami and JT’s relationship dates back years before their music careers. They grew up in Opa-Locka and Liberty City, two of Miami’s most economically disadvantaged communities. JT’s mother struggled with drug addiction, while Yung Miami’s mother went to jail for a hit-and-run charge when she was a teenager.

JT and Yung Miami found each other at Carol City Middle School in Miami Gardens, Florida. They quickly became close friends, and soon started to do everything together, including going out to high school dance clubs in Miami. By the end of high school, the two were performing together as a rap duo in strip clubs, nightclubs, and block parties.
