City Girls’ anticipated documentary Point Blank Period arrives today (Aug. 30), and Billboard has an exclusive first look. The documentary follows the story of the Miami-born rappers as they leave their humble beginnings in Florida and are rapidly thrown into the hip-hop spotlight.
Produced by their record label — Quality Control Music — and Mass Appeal, it is a revealing journey that shows the ladies dealing with instant fame, their reaction to Drake collaborating with them for Scorpion‘s “In My Feelings” hit (which is still the No. 1 song in the country after seven weeks), recording their debut album Period and Yung Miami preparing to hold down the team as JT gets ready for her jail sentence.
In the preview clip, the City Girls get real about the pressures weighed upon female rappers in a male-dominated industry and how they stay true to their fiery, provocative selves without the shadow of a man. “Back in the day, I feel like the only reason those girls were able to get all the shine they were getting was because Biggie Smalls was bringing out Lil Kim, JAY-Z was bringing out Foxy Brown and Ludacris was bringing out Shawnna,” JT explains.
You can watch the Point Blank Period documentary in full on Billboard now, or when it premieres today at 2:00 p.m. on the City Girls’ YouTube channel. “We’re excited for our fans to get a look inside of our lives, to get a chance to see the real us, our families, our trials and tribulations,” the City Girls tell Billboard about the doc. “We express ourselves in our music as real as we know how.”
