Call Yung Gravy a meme rapper; he won't mind. His debut album, Sensational, just came out in May of 2019, but Yung Gravy is already selling out auditoriums everywhere he plays by delivering culturally relevant and funny lyrics set to energetic beats. His smooth, suave voice and humorous lyrics are the perfect antidote to mumble rap. His 2016 tune "Mr. Clean" has garnered more than 1 million YouTube views. He's released four extended plays and a mixtape in addition to the Sensational album. Yung Gravy's Experience the Sensation tour will be his third North American tour.
Yung Gravy and Old Soul
Yung Gravy began rapping while he was attending the University of Wisconsin in Madison back when he was still known as Matt Hauri. It wasn't until his junior year that he began getting serious about his music. In 2016, he gave up a job at a startup so that he could focus on his tunes. The result was the song "Karen," which instantly generated a mighty viral buzz when he released it online. Yung Gravy's follow-up number, "Mr. Clean," showed off his fascination with doo-wop sampling and trap rhythms. In interviews, he's talked about how much he likes introducing contemporary fans to old soul and funk sounds through his sampling techniques. In 2018, he released another EP that builds on retro-sourced samples, "1 Thot 2 Thot Red Thot Blue Thot," which scored big with fans.
