For over a decade, Detroit-Serb emcee Valid has been making under-the-radar, feel-good hip-hop. Valid’s journey comes to a head on this year’s DJ Head-produced LP, Mihajlo, which details growing up as the child of immigrants, the nasty pay-to-play truth of the record industry, and just feeling straight-up grateful. Joining Valid to rep Detroit on a Midwest hip-hop bill is “So Cool” Ellie Sandiego, who fuses smooth girl-group rap of the ’90s and contemporary Jay-Z-esque spoken word flow. Cleveland’s Vice Souletric, Neaak, Philmore Greene, and Rashid Hadee from Chicago are also on the bill.

Doors open at 9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30; 3930 Cass Ave., Detroit; 313-831-3830; Cover is $5.
