Though not known to many, Logan is home to a rich and diverse hip-hop scene, thanks to a group of rappers organized by local performer Eddie Lion, artistically known as “Eddie De Leon.”

Lion, who has lived in Logan since 2007, started Small Time Entertainment — a group of performers who put on hip-hop shows in downtown Logan — in 2017. Since then, Small Time Entertainment has given many artists a place to start their music journey.

“We give people who don’t know how to begin the process of performing an outlet,” Lion said.
