At the beginning of the year, Dallas rapper Bobby Sessions announced his deal with Def Jam records. Now, for his highly anticipated debut for the storied hip-hop record label, there will be a listening party.

RVLTN: The Divided States Of AmeriKKKa is set to be released Friday. High Standardz, the management company and record label behind Sessions, and Def Jam will host a listening event at 7 p.m. Thursday at Alamo Drafthouse Cedars to celebrate this milestone for the Dallas hip-hop artist. Sessions, who began his solo career in 2015, will introduce each track.

The Observer spoke with Sessions three years ago, before his release of his first album, L.O.A., about his career risks.

“Basically, what you think, you become,” Sessions said. “Every time you have a thought, that thought emits a frequency, and thus it has to get a return on investment. So if I’m thinking positive things all the time, I have to attract positive opportunities, situations and people in my direction.”

Once the listening event concludes Blue, The Misfit will DJ an after party strictly playing hits from Def Jam artists.

Tickets are $5.41.
