DALLAS - Dallas Mavericks fans come in all sizes.

A 10-year-old boy from DeSoto has taken it to another level. He has put his love for the Mavs to a beat. 

"We go hard in the paint," he says in his new rap songs. "You know this. Dallas don't look past. Fast break, like show biz. Ya'll little boys can't mess with the Mavericks. Ya'll little boys better get away from Dallas."

Meet Bentley Green, an aspiring hip hop artist. Bentley learned to rap when he was three. 

His first song, "Hey Mama," went viral when he was 5-years-old and got nine million hits on YouTube. 

"First, you have to pick the beat, make it rhyme, put different things in it that are true, of course," Green said. 

The fourth grader’s latest rap is all about the Mavericks.

"On the court, we dunk with a shake with it," he raps. "Make a mistake and we hit a fast break with it. On them threes, Dirk fade away with it." 

Green's hip-hop career is taking off. He will perform at Six Flags in a few weeks. But, for now, his attention is focused on one thing, a Mavs world championship.

"It's going to be a big thing for Dallas," Green said. "For me, oh man, I'm going to be so happy."
