Exclusive: Yung Miami’s Reality Show Will Premiere On BET

Fans of City Girl member Yung Miami will soon be getting a more personal glimpse into her everyday life.

theJasmineBrand exclusively confirms that the rap star’s forthcoming reality series has a home and will officially air on the BET network.

Earlier this year during the VMA Awards Yung Miami, real name Caresha Brownlee, shared that the reality project about her life was in the works. After an interviewer asked what fans could expect from her, the 29-year-old stated:

“I got a reality show coming out, the City Girls dropping an album, my podcast. Just everything.”

In a subsequent interview, the “Act Up” artist shared that she’s considering titling the project “A Day In The Life of Miami”, though this has not yet been confirmed. Presently, there have not been many details shared about the show. It’s been suspected that Yung Miami’s on-again-off-again romance with billionaire Sean ‘Diddy‘ Combs could be a storyline on the series. However, since his sexual assault cases have been a hot topic as of late, it’s unclear whether or not he will actually make an appearance.

We do know that Yung Miami’s fellow City Girl JT will likely NOT be part of the series. During a tense moment of their interview with “The Breakfast Club” recently, Yung Miami all but confirmed that JT, real name Jatavia Johnson, 31, won’t be a recurring cast member, if she’s even on the project at all. While speaking about her potential role on the show, JT explained that QC label c0-founder Pierre ‘P’ Thomas approached the duo to star in the show together. Making clear that she’s focused on her music, however, JT says she declined the offer, stating:

“I didn’t want to do it…I want to make music. I feel like I don’t want to skip over that…I try to fall back as much as I can with personality…I just hate the fact that sometimes…they buy so much into it. I feel like I’ll get there, but I could do the music thing for sure,”

When the hosts questioned whether or not JT would at least be on the show “a lot”, Yung Miami responded:

“Yea, I don’t think so.”

As far as the series heading to BET, it’s no surprise seeing as though the musician seems to have a pretty good relationship with the network. The City Girls have performed several times at the annual BET awards, taking the stage with hits such as “Twerkulator” and mostly recently, “No Bars’ & ‘Face Down”.

Additionally, Yung Miami took home her first solo win from the awards show back in October of this year for the success of her podcast “Caresha Please”. If you recall, the music artist faced backlash from social media users who argued that her show was too new and shouldn’t have won over some of its competitors. Other nominees in the Best Hip-Hop Platform category included N.O.R.E.’s “Drink Champs”, “HipHopDX”, Wallo’s “Million Dollaz Worth of Game”, “Rap Caviar”, “The Breakfast Club”, as well as “The Joe Budden Podcast”. Yung Miami fired back at her critics, however, stating:

“People always saying that I don’t deserve stuff. Why I don’t deserve anything? I work hard, I deserve everything. When I just did my first live podcast, the line was around the corner. It’s new! We in a new time; we in a new generation. I’m bringing something new, so why I don’t deserve it?”


“I just feel like… as a Black woman, people always discrediting us. Like, don’t discredit me. I work hard. I’m away from my kids. I get up every morning; I put in the work. Like, I deserve everything that’s coming to me.”

At this time it doesn’t appear that Yung Miami has shared any further details about the series. There is also no official date on when the show will air.
