Airman 1st Class Dracy Green, 86th Security Forces Squadron, performs his music to help charities on base that support his fellow Airmen.

Green has raised more than $3,000 singing, rapping and writing music on his online website in order to donate money to multiple charities.

Green came into music because he enjoys the storytelling abilities of other artists.
As a child, he was inspired by artists like RUN DMC and The Beatles, but has only started selling his music and helping people within the last five years.

He donates 20 percent of his earnings to charities that have a hand in helping Airmen downrange as well as their families that are left home.

“Seven billion. That’s how many people are in the world, right? That’s how many I want to help … my passion is that strong to help people,” said the Detroit native.
Green originally wanted to assist by volunteering as much as possible, but being a security forces member, his schedule did not permit him to do so. He decided he could still help people with his music.

“I’ve been a fan of his music since he’s come to Ramstein, but what he’s doing with it shows the humanitarian side of the Air Force,” said Airman 1st Class Isaiah Haines, 86th SFS.

Green plans on using money from his upcoming album to help service members in the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility as well as the Red Cross.

“Stay on top; that’s all I want to do. As long as I’m doing that, I’ll always be able to help my fellow Airmen,” Green said. “I plan on changing the look of the Air Force with this music. I want to bring back the wingman concept by helping each other.”
