Rahsaan Orlando Holmes, the eldest son of two children, born to Barbara Vaughan Holmes and to the late Orlando Holmes on December 12, 1979, in Richmond, Virginia. 

Rahsaan graduated from Greensville County High School, Emporia, VA. As a child, he was known for his laughter, loving the beach and the outdoors. Later during his teenage years he played football and basketball. He had the talent of being an artist with his own unique style, pencil as his primary instrument for his drawings. As an adult, he was laid back, easy to talk to, enjoyed video games and was an advent watcher of world news.
