Yung Bleu is at the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds—in Dover, not the state fairgrounds near the casino—for this Father’s Day gig.

Billboard wrote that the Alabama rapper manifests his successes which have included collabs with Drake. “... Bleu's dream became a reality when NBA star DeMarcus Cousins first listened to his EP Love Scars and fell in love with Bleu's melodious single ‘You're Mines Still.’” Billboard wrote. Cousins made the Drake connection happen, and the collab happened.

Teenage rapper That Girl Lay Lay, who just scored a Nickelodeon show, is also on the bill, and no need to leave the family at home, dad. The show is kid-friendly as long as the children are accompanied by an adult.

Yung Bleu. Sunday, June 20, 3 p.m. $40-$80. Greater Hillsborough County Fairgrounds, Dover. eventbrite.com
