23-year-old MC and Minnesotan disruptor Yung Gravy quietly emerged as a gold-certified phenomenon by way of hilarious ad-libs and airtight rhymes. Within a year, his 2018, Snow Cougar, EP yielded a pair of gold-selling bangers, “Mr. Clean” and “1 Thot 2 Thot Red Thot Blue Thot.” He sold out three tours in North America, two tours in Europe, and his run of Australia and New Zealand. This hot streak continued as his world tour, “Experience The Sensation, Part 2,” also sold out. During 2019, his full-length debut Sensational (Republic Records) crashed the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and put up over 450 million streams.
bbno$ is well known for his cheeky earworm of rap single “Lalala,” which has racked up over 800 million streams worldwide, and his extensive catalog of music has amassed over 2 billon streams. In 2017 and 2018, he toured extensively in North America, Europe, and Australia with his frequent collaborator Yung Gravy, first in support of their joint EP Baby Gravy and then for bbno$’s debut album Bb Steps.
