THE BRONX - Some Bronx artists are turning community gardens into their personal hip-hop arenas. 

MCs, dancers and poets used the Willis Avenue Community Garden to put on a live performance honoring hip-hop. Performers of all ages took to the stage to share experiences about city life and what it's like to be a Bronx native. 

Many say that green spaces should be used more often for similar events that bring community members together. 

Another live performance will be held at the borough's Target Community Garden on July 26.
