The release comes as JT continues to prepare for the release of her debut EP as a solo artist. Speaking with Kali Uchis for Interview Magazine, last year, she explained that the project will likely drop early in 2024. “I really want my first EP to have that raw, grungy sound,” the City Girls rapper said. “I wanted to do that for my birthday [Dec. 3], but I think it’s too soon because I’m so picky. So probably the top of next year. I’m going to figure it out when I have the time and I have the sounds that I want. But I’m a hard thinker. I want everything to be perfect, and this time I’m going to be presented by myself, so I really want it to look like everything.” Check out her post celebrating "Sideways" below.
