City Girls rapper JT is doing her part to help incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women with No Bars Reform.
According to the official website, the purpose of No Bars Reform is to help other incarcerated women rehabilitate into society by assisting with resources such as therapy, job placement, social services, and housing.
JT, whose real name is Jatavia Johnson, was arrested and charged with aggravated identity theft in 2018.
She was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison and was released on March 7, 2020.
Fortunately, for JT she was part of a wildly popular rap group.
Getting back on her feet wasn’t as hard as it is for many other formerly incarcerated women.
Hopefully, No Bars Reform will stand in the gap with resources for employment, mental health, substance abuse, housing, and more.
JT also released her new single, “No Bars.”
The rapper gave the scoop on the song writing:
‘No Bars’ is a freestyle
I made in the studio when I was having one of those days.
At the time like most of the time, ppl were doubting me & questioning why wasn’t I as visual & vocal as others!
Not knowing me personally…
I’d read the craziest things about myself & would want to scream.
But, instead I went to the studio & popped my s**t!
I know most of y’all heard it but for those who haven’t I hope this freestyle finds you in a great place & is a start of the respect I deserve in music!
No more hiding my love for music. I love music! I love my voice! I love poppin my s**t.
It’s only ME VS. ANXIETY…

Kudos to JT for finding her voice and for giving back to those who need it.
