KEARNEY – It’s all gravy, baby.

American rapper, song writer and social media sensation Yung Gravy is coming to Kearney.

Los Angeles rapper Chevy Woods will open for Yung Gravy.

Yung Gravy’s musical style is a blend of hip-hop, funk and modern trap with themes inspired by the soul and oldies movements of the 1950s through 1980s, giving him a unique sound in the rap community. For example, his platinum breakout hit “Mr. Clean” samples the popular 1954 song “Mr. Sandman” by The Chordettes. His first Billboard Hot 100 single “Betty (Get Money)” samples Rick Astley’s 1988 smash “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

Yung Gravy’s accolades include two platinum and five gold singles, and he recently performed sold out tours in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

His 2019 debut album Sensational crashed the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart and featured the singles “Whip a Tesla” and “1 Thot 2Thot Red Thot Blue Thot.”

Yung Gravy’s latest album Marvelous was released in October 2022 and features the singles “C’est La Vie” and “Dancing in the Rain” along with “Betty.” He is also known for his successful hits “Oops!” and “Welcome to Chilis.”

Los Angeles rapper and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, native Chevy Woods will open for Yung Gravy. Woods is Wiz Khalifa’s hype man and has performed and collaborated with Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, ASAP MOB, Pro Era and other well-known artists. He released his debut album Since Birth in 2020.
