Tomorrow, Kelvin will release Neva Lookin' Back, his first full-length album for the label, and he's celebrating with several events.

Tonight, at True Cocktails on the East Bank, Quincy "Big Heff" Taylor will host a private listening session for the album.

Tomorrow from 6 to 9 p.m., Ilthy Workshop will have a listening party and will sell a limited edition collaboration shirt designed by Kelvin and Ilthy's Glen Infante. Later that night, East End Restaurant will have another listening party as well.
