Performer coming in for YCP spring concert is no longer a mystery

By Alyson Hatfield

After three years with no spring concert, students were eager to find out who would headline the Campus Activies Board (CAB) spring 2023 concert.

Late Friday morning, students gathered in Sparts Den to enjoy some free food and wait for the noon reveal of who the concert artist would be.

CAB Executive Board member Kenny Hamme announced that the artist would be American rapper Yung Gravy.

Per the rapper’s bio, Mathew Raymond Hauri was born on March 19, 1996, in Rochester, Minnesota. He is a well-known rapper, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur who has been professionally active since 2016 when he started uploading his music onto the online audio distribution platform, SoundCloud. His popularity began to soar in 2017 when a few of his songs gained traction there. Since then, he has released a broad range of musical projects.

Since his late father (Dr. Peter Johannes Hauri, an insomnia psychologist) was born in Switzerland, Mathew holds Swiss/American dual citizenship. His stage name was inspired by the rapper Yung Lean. He has several other stage names as well, including Mr. Butter, Lil Steamer, and Jimmy Continental.

The concert will take place on Friday, April 21, in the Grumbacher Feild House. Tickets are on sale until March 21 at 5 p.m.

For students, tickets will be $25 and for faculty and staff, as well as community members, tickets will be $50 apiece.

Students have spent some time speculating about the artist and seemed pleasantly surprised by the reveal.
