SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Over the years Hip-hop music has gotten a bad rap. But Shreveport's Ben Green uses his style of rap to help and encourage others.

Green listened to both hip-hop and rap while growing up. Later, he grew more into learning about Jesus, thanks to his grandmother.

After she died, Green decided to turn his grandmother's house into a recording studio. He encourages local artists by helping them feel comfortable in his studio, preparing them for the real world.

Green says that, even if all doesn't -- or does -- work out, he will continue to reach out to the community and feed the homeless.

Green attends the Word of Life Center in Shreveport.
