Yung Gravy isn't suing even after he suffered multiple fractures

A few weeks ago Yung Gravy had what looked like a pretty serious fall during a performance. He was playing at Alabama's Hangout Music Festival when he tripped over a wooden plank while addressing the crowd. Video of the incident went viral and given how particularly nasty the fall looked fans were curious what happened. In the days following he revealed that he suffered multiple fractures as a result.

Thankfully, he seems to be in good spirits and when TMZ caught up with him recently he filled in some more details. He told cameras that despite it being his own fault he tripped, that Hangout Festival was generously covering his medical bills resulting from the fall. This probably has something to do with his decision not to pursue any kind of legal action against the organizers of the Hangout Fest. The festival was the very first stop on Yung Gravy's summer tour but despite his injuries he continued performing and hasn't cancelled any shows. He's set to appear at Lollapalooza, Bonaroo, BottleRock, and more festivals over the next few months.

Yung Gravy's Painful Trip

Aside from Yung Gravy's fall Hangout Fest seemed to go on without any other issues. Headliners like SZA, Lil Nas X, and GloRilla performed at the fest and fans online seemed to enjoy it. Yung Gravy is coming off a 2022 where he scored his biggest hit to date with "Betty (Get Money)." Unfortunately, the song's prominent sample of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" might have cause more trouble for Gravy than it was worth. Earlier this year it went public that Gravy was being sued by Astley for his use of the song.

Yung Gravy dropped his 4th album "Marvelous" last year. Despite that, he has been busy in 2023 so far already releasing a number of tracks. Included in the bunch if the bbno$ featuring "Goodness Gracious," as well as "Strawberries & Creamin'" which dropped just last week. Gravy also hopped on a remix of ARTAN's TikTok hit "She's A 10 But..." earlier this year. What do you think of the rapper's choice not to sue Hangout Fest? Let us know in the comments below.
