Whether you like Yung Gravy for real or you like him because he’s sort of funny, the Minnesota rapper is coming to Tampa Bay for the first time when his “Experience the Sensation” tour hits Jannus Live on October 25.

The 23-year-old has been a bit of a phenomenon with the kids since his first single “Mr. Clean,” but he’s rapping about Tampa now, y’all. “Going fishing for your bitch today, we drunk in Tampa Bay,” he claims (with assists from Chief Keef and Y2K) in his country-trap single “Tampa Bay Bustdown.”

Is he making fun of us? Is he praising us? Are we just a joke to him? Yung Gravy, we need answers.

You can pay $98 for a special VIP meet and greet before the show to find out; just hope that Mr. Gravy wears something under that robe. Tiiiiiiiiiip and SavageRealm open the all-ages show. Tickets start at $23.50 and are available at jannuslive.com.
