"Caresha, please!!! Went from STARZ to Tubi real quick," one person quipped after seeing the City Girl on screen.

Yung Miami and JT have only been making music together as City Girls since the late 2010s. Already, the duo has achieved so many major milestones both together and apart. For her part, Caresha Brownlee has dabbled in several avenues outside of rapping, including modelling, acting, and hosting her own REVOLT podcast. Jatavia Johnson, of course, was previously involved in scamming, for which she served time. She now pours her energy into creative outlets like fashion and writing lyrics.

For their most recent performance together, the City Girls joined forces at Rolling Loud California. During their set, they performed plenty of old favourites, also previewing their next drop, "Piñata." It's been receiving favourable reactions on social media so far, as have both Miami and JT's feather-covered ensembles.

BMF Isn't the Only Performing Caresha's Been Doing

Their time on stage went off without a hitch. Sadly, the rap divas didn't have as much luck during their interviews at the festival. While speaking with 28-year-old Tamera Kissen, the City Girls were bombarded with uncomfortable questions about their sex life. Yung Miami managed to keep a smile on her face for the most part, though JT's shocked expression was far less contained.

Being back in performance mode was undeniably exciting for the partners in rhyme, but this weekend, Caresha put her acting cap on to make her debut on 50 Cent's BMF series. She has previous acting experience from appearing in Netflix's You People and Kenya Barris' Grown-ish, so many were hoping to be impressed by her work. Unfortunately, the reactions pouring in seem to be the opposite, with multiple viewers dubbing it the "worst acting" they've ever seen.

Viewers React to Miami's Acting

"I hope Yung Miami stick to making music bruh, this really the worst acting I ever seen in my life," one person wrote after seeing the City Girl slap Lil Meech. "Please give actors/actresses the chance to be on this show. No more guest star rappers that can’t act. We already let it slide with bad acting Lala but that Yung Miami shit is not it," someone else urged the hit show's producers.

Amid all the hate, the mother of two managed to find a positive comment which she replied to early Friday (March 10) morning. "Caresha did great for her first time acting and especially playing a role that had a similar situation in her life. That's hard to do," they praised her. "Thank you SD," she wrote back.
