City Girls’ uncensored documentary produced by Quality Control Music in partnership with Mass Appeal hits today! Directed by Marcus A. Clarke, the documentary Point Blank Period follows Quality Control’s newly signed artists as they break into a predominantly male-dominated industry with their debut album. Exclusive interviews with City Girls’ Yung Miami and JT, as well as industry trailblazers Trina, Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas, expose the complicated road to breaking female artists in the changing music landscape.

While the girl’s collaboration with Drake on ‘In My Feelings’ rendered the #1 chart-topping song in the country, the girls’ quick ascension from local Miami artists to viral sensations has presented a whole new set of challenges as City Girl JT prepares for a looming jail sentence. The documentary covers their struggle to the top as Quality Control’s first female artists and how they plan on coming back stronger than ever after surviving the incarceration of one half of the duo at such a pivotal moment in their career.

JT and Yung Miami are brash, raw, uncensored with a swagger rooted in the queens who came before them. Their empowered themes were originally put forth by Foxy Brown, Salt N’ Pepa, Khia, and friend and Miami-based and mentor Trina whose own influential career help spawn and revolutionize female music and Rap.

Coach K and Pierre “Pee” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song ‘Fu*k Dat N****’ from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation. Period has been covered by the likes of Pitchfork, Noisey, XXL, COMPLEX, FADER and more. Honourable descendants in the lineage of Miami’s legendary music culture, akin to a long history of powerful women in the rap game, City Girls are the next queens to claim the throne.
