‘Everyone always wants me to do shoey, they have this obsession with shoeys which is weird, but I kind of like it,’ he laughed.
‘I did a shoey one time. I was very lucky because the whole crowd started chanting, I don’t remember exactly what, how it went, but I had to do it peer pressure,’ he recalled.
‘But I bought the shoes that day. I was so blessed,’ he added.
Yung Gravy said he found it fascinating that Aussies were so obsessed with shoeys

‘Everyone always wants to do shoey, they have this obsession with shoeys which is weird, but I kind of like it,’ he laughed
‘I was more hands on than I was with anything else, because I actually finally learned after like five years of rapping I learned how to actually do the production side of things so I touched a lot more of the music.’
The singer is currently on a 29-city tour of North America with Alex Gumuchian, known by his stage name as bbno$, before reaching Australian shores in February.
