Hip-hop music has gradually become one of the most popular genres of music in the United States, gaining traction on mainstream airwaves over the past couple of decades. In Mansfield, Ohio there is an underground movement taking place in the rap industry, led by a talented young emcee with dreams of becoming one of the greats.

20-year-old Tazjin is one of the bright talents in the rap game in the local area, perfecting his craft for nearly half of his lifetime. The Mansfield product will release his highly anticipated first EP this Friday night entitled "Whole New Page", which local producer Marshall Levins helped create.

Levins is the owner of Nydema Entertainment, where he has helped produce tracks for some of the best hip-hop artist's in the Mansfield area. Many of them will be putting their skills on display this Friday night at Chris's Bar & Grill on West 4th St in Mansfield, for a free concert called "Clash at Events".

Levins will also be performing at the event under the stage name Lev, along with local artist's Beyond Pluto, Hopp, Dirtywax and Tazjin, who will be headlining the show. The event will also act as the release party of Tazjin's first EP, as well as Levins mix tape "Resurgence".

The show begins at 9 p.m. and runs until 2 a.m. with all ages welcome, but minors must be accompanied by an adult.

You can find Tazjin on facebook and twitter, and check out Levins at www.nydema.com
