XV will stop in Iowa City on his "Midwest State of Mind" tour on Saturday, after creating new music in preparation for the release of his début album, The Kid with the Greenback.

Donavan Johnson, a Wichita, Kan., native will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Blue Moose, 211 Iowa Ave. Admission ranges from $12 to $14.

XV has released 16 mixtapes since 2006, and in 2008, his most famous song, "40 Days/40 Nights," was released. After that, he also released an 80-song collection of freestyle and rap songs.

Most recently, in 2009, he released "Everybody's Nobody" and also signed with Warner Bros. Records.

Several of his songs have made it on the "Best of 2011" list, and he's gained inspiration for his music by playing certain video games.
