Chicago hip-hop is having a moment. A new generation of diverse storytellers, all equipped with an informed sense of emotional and spatial awareness, are bubbling to the top. Among them is Free Nation’s Mick Jenkins. The young MC made major strides with his sophomore LP, Pieces of a Man, which finds Jenkins throwing down on some relaxed existential puzzle-piece placement. Jenkins goes all over the map with his spoken word style as he takes on Christianity, the street, success, and navigating #MeToo. Kari Faux is also on the bill.

Mick Jenkins will perform at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1 at the Shelter; 431 E. Congress St., Detroit; 313-961-8961;; Tickets are $22.
