Drake is a big fan of the Miami duo made up of rappers JT and Yung Miami, even shouting them out on his song.
“How did Drake know us? We just some random hood City Girls. How he heard our music? For him to just follow us, not even knowing he knew our music, it’s like people is really paying attention to us," said the duo in an interview with Rap-Up. The song "F*ck Dat N*gga" comes from the City Girls' Quality Control Presents: Control the Streets, Vol. 1 compilation.
