Yung Gravy has developed a reputation for having song lyrics that can be a little saucy. Those who are familiar with the artist know the lyrical content of his songs has been known to offend some people at times. But, there's no denying the popularity of this rap artist with fans who love that genre of music. And that's why the folks with the Nebraska State Fair have decided to book him to perform next August.

Yung Gravy will be taking his special recipe of music south of Sioux Falls and performing it in Grand Island next August with special guest Tayler Holder.

Early Bird pricing for the Yung Gravy concert is now underway. Ticket prices for the show at $10 off the regular price from Friday, December 8 until December 22.

According to Dakota News Now, Yung Gravy has sold out shows in Australia and New Zealand in addition to packing venues coast-to-coast in North America with sellouts at both the Hollywood Palladium and New York’s Terminal 5.
